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. The theatre we make is entertaining, accessible and eccentric.
In 2017 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 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. The company are now making their long term home in North Wiltshire.
