"A beautifully simple story, with a meaningful message that would be enjoyed by adults and children alike." - practicallyperfectmums.co.uk

Follow the tale of Italian ice cream seller Jim who falls in love with Alice strolling along the beach in a 1950s whirlwind romance. However, all is not as sweet as it seems when their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of their son Sam… a very unusual boy!

Based on the title story of The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton, this bittersweet tale reminds us of the fragility of life and introduces us to a range of larger-than-life characters that are sure to entertain and delight. Oyster Boy is a multi-award-winning, international production mixing physical storytelling, clowning, live singing, dance and puppetry.
