Odd Pencil

Herman isn't sure of much, except that his Birthday is coming up, and that his Birthdays are cursed. Every year, on his Birthday, something bad happens, and his Birthday is coming up. It's coming up very soon actually. Maybe too soon to do anything about it. Oh dear.

Anyway, time to get back to work, and Herman loves his job, or at least he doesn't mind it, or not mind it, actually he's not sure. Oh dear.

Herman's really not sure of much at all.

Time is ticking down for Herman and if it keeps on ticking the way it has been, he might have to something drastic, something unusual, something completely unbelievable.


Through clown and physical storytelling Knapsack plays on stereotype and the absurd to address serious topics in a bizarre and engaging manner. Snails come in all shapes and sizes, and so do emotions. Some snails live under water. Some biscuits look like snails.
