“Brilliant physical comedy” -Edmonton Journal

Meet The Hunchinson Family Players – a theatre troupe of hunchbacked siblings hoping to turn their luck around with an adaptation of Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Paul has artistic vision. Johann has merchandise. Hilda has room in her bed.

The Hunchbacks of Notre Dame is an original physical comedy complete with musical numbers and improvisation. Like the novel, the show explores power and beauty and betrayal and what it means to be different and how commercialism pushes society to hew to a rigid view of normal – but with more confetti. Hugo’s classic gets the production it never deserved in this eccentric offering!

Hunchbacks has played: Dell’Arte International (Blue Lake, CA), Iowa State University (Ames, IA), James Madison University (Harrisonburg, VA), Virginia Governor School for the Arts (Norfolk, VA), Edmonton Fringe Festival (Edmonton, AB), Saskatoon Fringe Festival (Saskatoon, SK), UNAM’s Festival de Teatro Universitario (Mexico City, MX), FURYFactory (San Francisco, CA), CSSSA (California State Summer School for the Arts in Valencia, CA), The Berkshire Fringe (Pittsfield, MA), and The Gladstone Theatre (Ottawa, ON).
