Trygve Wakenshaw




Trygve Wakenshaw delights in this critically acclaimed physical comedy about an imaginary friend who makes imaginary friends who make imaginary enemies who make imaginary armies out of imaginary Scotsmen.

Cult fringe favourite SQUIDBOY comes to Perth straight from a sold-out season at Edinburgh Fringe, where it was nominated for a Total Theatre Award.

Trygve (pronounced trig-vee) is an award-winning New Zealand-born actor and comedian, now based in London. He studied for two years at Ecole Philippe Gaulier, the prestigious clown school with alumni including Sasha Baron-Cohen, Emma Thompson, Philip Burgers (Dr Brown) and founding members of Complicite and Spymonkey. Trygve was awarded Metro Magazine’s Best Emerging Actor award. His work with Theatre Beating has also won numerous awards: Best Comedy Auckland Fringe ’04 for Happy Hour for Miserable Children, Best Outdoor Fringe 2006 for This is a Plum and the STAMP award 2011 for Constantinople.

What will happen? Nobody knows. Not even the squid.
