Work Overview

Pantomime is inspired by the Tim Burton poem The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy, a surreal tragicomic poem about a boy born half human half oyster; an oddity, he brings misery to his parents, and the bizarre sequence of events that lead to his demise, whilst darkly amusing, reflect on how quickly people can race to the bottom to preserve their own interests.
