FRIENDLY EVER AFTER is a lovely story of two clowns trying to find true friendship.

about the production

FRIENDLY EVER AFTER – is a touching story of two young characters trying to find true friendship. When fate unites them, they realise that cultivating a new friendship is not an easy job, particularly at this early stage of their lives. They discover together the beauty of friendship and the need to respect, help and understand one’s friend. Between the many jokes, arguments, disputes and amusing moments, they discover with the help of the young audience that friendship can be deeper and more rewarding if they simply start to act with genuine kindness, tolerance and empathy with one another.

about the artist

NOS Three is a collective of three Brazilian artists that have decided to collaborate creating new authentic work. Our interests and goals are all focused on the research of the playful, comic and black comedic. The core technique used is clowning to subvert the logic and redefine the day-by-day routine. Our projects mainly involve original shows devised by the group, but it also includes interpretations of great classical works.

“Such an imaginative show! The children were totally absorbed and laughed throughout. The theme of friendship was very useful to trigger conversations about the play in the classroom”
