Departing from his home, the moon, a wise old man travels with his weathered precious trunk to a world that has forgotten how to laugh. Hoping to extinguish cynicism and judgement and replace it with joy and curiosity, he brings an arsenal of clowns, ignorant to the rules of the world. Together, these clowns must embark on a quest to find that beautiful laugh. Searching through each other and their audience, the clowns will discover and examine every avenue of laughter: love, joy, mischief, pain, fear, sadness and more, hoping to find the laugh that they have all been waiting for … That Beautiful Laugh.
Coming fresh off their run of Robin Hood at South Coast Repertory, Four Clowns is back in Long Beach with a family- and child-friendly show about the joys of laughter.
_That Beautiful Laugh _plays at the Long Beach Playhouse Studio Theatre through March 17.
