About: Baby Boomers & The Confetti Maker

A stunning piece of physical theatre, Baby Boomers substitutes language for balloons, blending mask, puppetry and extreme balloon modelling to tell this poignant story of love, loss and regret.

From acclaimed director John Wright co-founder of Trestle and Told by an idiot, Baby Boomers tells the heart-warming story of a young couple from their first meeting and follows them through the life they make together.

But a tragic loss threatens to consume there lives forever.

Full of optimism, he pursues his profession: making confetti – cutting, perforating, shredding – all day, every day – but he has ambitions, dreams and fears far beyond the factory life – romance … love … family

The Confetti Maker is a highly visual piece. It combines slapstick, puppetry, absurd storytelling, improvisation and, of course, lots of small bits of paper, which are expertly woven into a humorous, yet poignant show.


“A lovely little romance that will appeal to anyone with a heart and an imagination”. The Scotsman

“Frank Wurzinger is hilarious” The Stage

“Wurzinger created a truly unique performance that had me laughing and smiling throughout... awkwardly brilliant”Remotegoat
