This Year's Show


The famous parfumier of the town of Sniffniff creates the best scent in the land. One day the emperor, hearing of his smelly skills, demands that he create a new perfume, a perfume never smelt before, a perfume fit for a king, or else there will be trouble. The parfumier now needs your help to create the perfect pong.Together with his assistant, he needs to mix some special ingredients, and work out which scents are best. Which perfume will please the Emperor? What creates the perfect smell? What happens if the sniff isn’t up to scratch?


Following the rip-roaring success of last year’s ‘The Princess and The Goblin' Exeter Phoenix is delighted to welcome Quirk Theatre back for the 10th year running. Quirk productions are renowned for their ingenious theatrical devices, freshness of interpretation, and simple but stunning costume and set design.

'Innovative, imaginative and incredibly inventive, Quirk Theatre's show holds audiences in the grip of excitement.' Western Morning News

'The work of Quirk and Exeter Phoenix is light years ahead, showing experience, theatrical craft and a detailed awareness of the audience.' Arts Council England
