8 – 22 October 1983
Trestle’s early works were comic sketches based on a simple situation and performed in full, helmet, cartoon style masks.
Creche was based on the activities of children in a playgroup. School Rules portrayed the tyranny of the classroom. Hanging Around observed unemployed youths passing time in a town centre and featured Morris the Mohican, which later became Trestle’s company logo. Put together, these three short pieces created an amusing trilogy on the trials and tribulations of growing up. Hanging Around, as the trilogy became collectively known, was a huge hit for Trestle, touring to over 10 countries over the span of a decade, including Brazil, Egypt, Japan and the Czech Republic.
