A smaller '12 chair' version of the behemoth musical is transforming the Hayes

Even reconfigured into a 12-person ensemble piece, we wonder how director Tyran Parke is going to fit this musical – which features, among other things, a mermaid, a giant and a man shot out of a cannon – into the tiny space of the Hayes.

Big Fish is based on Daniel Wallace’s 1998 novel and Tim Burton’s 2003 film of the same name, with a score by Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family).

Parke's indie production will star Phillip Lowe (Georgy Girl) as travelling salesman Edward Bloom, whose tall stories have kept his friends and family entertained for years – until his son starts to search for the truth behind them.

Adam Rennie (Love Never Dies) and Kirby Burgess (Dirty Dancing) also star, along with Katrina Retallick (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Edward’s devoted wife.
