The Adventures of the Stoneheads


28 June 2002 – 1 March 2003

The Adventures of the Stoneheads told the story of an eccentric and colourful family and their quest to survive when they are washed up on an unfamiliar shore.

Reminiscent of the films of Jeunet (Delicatessen, Amélie) and the paintings of Andrejz Umiastowski, The Adventures of the Stoneheads created a poetic, humorous and sometimes bleak vision both of Britain and the experiences of people seeking a safe haven. The show was first performed as part of the Royal National Theatre’s Transformation season in July 2002.
