A sad, strange fairytale, Mirabel is a story of what happens when you refuse to accept that you’re lost.

“If you have never seen a show by Chris Goode you are in for a treat. Goode’s brand of storytelling (seen in the delicately touching coming of age tale, ‘The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley’, and ‘Men in the Cities’) captured the confusion of the modern male long before we started talking about toxic masculinity and male mental health. This one is a dark fairy tale set in an apocalyptic landscape, as eight-year-old Mirabel and her bear look for an adult to take care of them.”

Overview

The new show from Chris Goode, whose previous storytelling solos include the much-loved The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley and the award-winning Men in the Cities.

Eight-year-old Mirabel wakes up after the end of the world to find herself alone, except for her old faithful Bear. Everyone else appears to be gone.

And so, Mirabel and Bear set out on a journey across the new desert to find an adult to take care of everything. On the way, they’ll acquire a ragged gang of fellow travellers, including a visionary red-eyed dog, and an injured pilot who insists he’s not the grown-up they’re looking for.

A sad, strange fairytale, Mirabel is a story of what happens when you refuse to accept that you’re lost.

Critic reviews

Mirabel is not your ordinary adventure tale, nor is it particularly one of hope and happiness

Broadway World

Mirabel is a unique theatre experience, with poetic language and impressive visual and technical flair

Everything Theatre

Mirabel is a nice story. It’s an always-partly-familiar story that, for people who know Goode’s work, seems almost too nice at times

Exeunt

Chris Goode’s latest solo show blends whimsy with existential angst to impressive effect
