An Adult Dr Seuss is a one-man-show by performance poet Geoff Allnutt, AKA The Speech Painter. It takes the work and world of Dr Seuss and re-imagines them for adults using the rhythms and tongue-twisting alliteration of Seuss's classics to create a show of mind-altering poetry. Along the way we meet a cast of original characters distorted and lost in a grown up world, where The Twat in the Flat can't stop ingesting vast quantities of narcotics and the The Grinch has somehow transformed into David Lynch and an A-Z of Ted will tell of the often bizarre creations of Theodor Geisel AKA Dr Seuss.
