Bonhomme is a family show built with mud and powered by thoughts.

Based in a community garden, this new immersive and participatory show seamlessly blends storytelling, object theatre, live music and philosophy for children. Children are natural philosophers and start to question the world around them very early on. What’s Coming out of the Box firmly believes that children’s theatre should not shy away from big juicy topics. We enjoy asking big questions to small people.

What makes a good human? This is the philosophical question we examine in Bonhomme, using the Golem myth for loose inspiration.

“Clever, thought provoking, children’s theatre touching on hard subject matter in a gentle and interactive way.” – Emily Ghassempour, parent.

Age Guidance: Bonhomme is aimed at ages 4 – 8. Children are invited to take part in the discussion as well as the clay modelling, so it is best enjoyed by those of an age to participate fully.
