“Le theatre, les arts, le cirque et le jeu ont enfin donné naissance à Lagaffe Productions: un enfant précoce"
At a young age, Sarah Peterson, the creator of Lagaffe Productions, was nicknamed after ‘Lagaffe’, a bubbly, clumsy, French cartoon character who breaks everything he touches and yet is kind and naïve.
Lagaffe Productions expands and enriches the dimensions of this character and, in doing so, becomes quirky, lighthearted, honest and impulsive. Where one person goes from point A to B in a straight line, a character in a Lagaffe production will be sure to find every possible delay, distraction or deviation in what would normally be a straightforward journey. What story was told? What has changed throughout that journey?
Lagaffe Productions brings everyday human experiences to the stage. Private matters and seemingly hopeless situations are examined, with humour and grace, through a satirical lens. We all act a certain way when we believe no one is watching, and often in those times it seems a shame that the raw vulnerability and honesty that is kept between four walls can’t be shared....until now.
