The Last Baguette makes fast-paced, irreverent physical comedy. We are company in residence at Pound Arts, Corsham and tour to theatres, rural touring venues and arts centres across the country. We have performed in the UK, France, Switzerland and Canada.
The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools. We believe in the power of physical comedy and silliness to talk about important issues of our times.
We tour shows, lead the Pound’s Youth theatre, run one off workshops and community projects. We are excited by the possibilities of art bringing people together and believe theatre can be catalyst for change. We are proud to work with our Paris-based sister association Malafesta to bring European artists to the UK. The theatre we make is entertaining, accessible and eccentric. In 2017 and 2018/9 we created and toured the Arts Council supported show The Little Match Girl. We performed to sell out audiences across the southwest and midlands. While company in residence at Pound Arts we also created the Arts Council supported shows Dracula – A Terrifying Comedy, and What’s the Matter? a physical comedy about physics which have toured to theatres, festivals, arts centres and schools from 2015 - 2017. These followed Shake!!! William Speare, a multilingual comedy based on “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” directed by Aitor Basauri (Spymonkey), which was performed in France, Switzerland and Canada.
