    About

    PRESENTED BY TOBACCO FACTORY THEATRES BEYOND

    Written and Performed by Vic Llewellyn & Kid Carpet

    Local legends Kid Carpet and Vic Lewellyn take you on a musical, magical, moving journey through the minds of some of our planet’s most eccentric and creative individuals. A smash-hit success at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe, we are thrilled to present this unique show at the brilliantly atmospheric Cube Microplex. 

    The Castle Builder tells the true story of an inmate in a Norwegian psychiatric institute who over 5 years built a castle on a remote headland.

    The show spirals outwards from personal accounts into tales of other outsider artists who’ve been inspired to build gigantic extraordinary structures, alone, in secret, and without recognition from the real world.

    Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet re-imagine these stories and tell them with visceral live music, dancing, projection, heartfelt storytelling and chewed bread sculptures.
