The Kagools - They're cute, they're mute, they're an absolute hoot!

The mimic comedy duo "The Kagools, a.k.a. Nicola Wilkinson and Claire Ford", raise a laugh right from their entry in the room till the audience exit.

Two mute, cheerful characters, with expressive faces glowing from their hoods; they inhabit both the real world and through the wonder of multimedia, a fictional on-screen one. Throughout the show, the two vanish behind the screen and the audience is treated to a sketch or short film.

As they run behind a large screen in the centre of the stage, a video plays of the pair doing similar movements to give the impression of continuity. This swiftly turns into simple but amusing sight gags. I loved their faces and so did everyone else.

The Centre Screen Act

The show includes audience participation-and I found myself doing some moves I really shouldn't have–much to the amusement of my husband and later to be posted on Facebook! However, one really lucky audience member got to eat a half-eaten chocolate bar too. The act of eating the whole packet of chips was memories to my childhood.

The highlight of the entire show is an audience member filled into a bear costume and led behind the screen, upon which screens a frenzied picnic that is surely one of the outright funniest pieces of the entire festival.

The Bear Act

This duo takes you back to the era of Mr. Bean. They have the ability to masterfully tell a story through animated facial expressions; a technique which is both mesmerising and entertaining.

This show works beautifully for all ages and nationalities especially with the School Holidays around Easter. There's enough subtle adult content to keep the majority laughing.

Masterful physical theatre performers... Kids and adults alike will love this excellent and interactive piece of theatre.
