In collaboration with Nitro and Theatre Royal Plymouth

An awe-inspiring event combining Trinidadian carnival, live music, and a host of surprises with Told by an Idiot’s trademark theatrical inventiveness.

When the plantation owner, Mr Walker, kills a penniless street beggar trying to court his daughter, he’s haunted to the grave and into the spirit world beyond - to a point where carnival is his only option.

The Evocation of Papa Mas is a love story and a powerful parody set in a cartoon comic book world; sometimes surreal, sometimes beautiful and poignant, yet shocking and raucously funny at the same time.

A magical production directed by Told by an Idiot co-founder John Wright and created by a team of internationally acclaimed artists and local community participants, making this show unique to every host city.

The Evocation of Papa Mas was a show for everyone with a zest for life!
