The Last Baguette theatre company makes entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences, and is one of the resident artists at Pound Arts, Corsham, Wiltshire. 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 are proud to work with our Paris-based sister association Malafesta to bring European artists to the UK and have toured the UK and France with 7 shows.

Pandora’s Box A riotous and ridiculous retelling - touring outdoors summer 2023
Ever wondered what’s in the box? The one on the top shelf? Why is it there? Why were you told not to look it in? Could it really be so bad? With a plethora of costume changes, a pantheon of Gods and a prohibited peek into a pithos, The Last Baguette retell the preposterous and problematic story of Pandora.
A gallop through Greek mythology featuring goofy gods, hilarious heroines & daft deities. Join the Baguettes as they lift the lid on this classic myth with physical comedy, visual storytelling, live music, un-Apollo-getically bad puns and lo-fi special effects. A show for anyone aged 6 to 126 who’s ever asked why.
