A boy. A balloon. A story of friendship.

Based on the classic 1956 short film by Albert Lamorisse, the award-winning Lucky Dog bring their acclaimed and anarchic version of this classic tale, loved by generations, in this performance filmed at Brighton Fringe in 2019.

Pascal lives a lonely life with his mother in Paris. On his way to school one day, he finds a red balloon and together they discover the true meaning of friendship. Tony (Pascal) and Philip (everyone else) make this internationally-loved story equal parts charming, touching, funny and silly. The show is suitable for all the family.

Lucky Dog are always a Fringe favourite, and often play to full houses, standing ovations and 5-star reviews.

'Outstanding' - FringeReview

'A delightfully performed magical tale of friendship and loyalty' - Radio Summerhall Review

'For adults, Tony and Philip step out of character to joke, make witty asides and argue. Children like the more physical and visual aspects and of course, the story itself captivates them. Children and adults alike roared with laughter' - Buxton Fringe Review
