SMITH dancetheatre's Agnes and Walter: a Little Love Story is a delightful flight of fancy that set the Edinburgh Festival Fringe alight with its poignant and compelling comic story-telling. Crossing boundaries of dance and theatre, the work combines physical and visual performance styles including dance, physical theatre, clowning and live music. A love story of long-term commitment, secret desires, day-dreaming and a garden shed, Agnes and Walter is inspired by James Thurber’s classic story, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and features an exceptional cast that spans the generations. Aged 26-78, their credits include DV 8, Kneehigh, Punchdrunk, Fabulous Beast, Roy Hart Theatre.
