Grigoriy Alexeivich Dhukov is one of the world's greatest unsung literary talents. The tragic and inspiring story of the great Russian absurdist is brought to thrilling life in this bold theatrical adaptation of his masterpiece, The Narcissist. Or is it? A character comedy show where no one can be trusted – especially me. Absurdity and silliness collide with toxic male egos in this wildly overblown debut from Graham Dickson, star of Austentatious. ***** (Times). ***** (Chortle.co.uk). **** (Guardian) for Austentatious. ‘A star is born with Graham Dickson... divine charisma’ (AYoungerTheatre.com).
JOHNNY WHITE REALLY-REALLY
Pigeons' takes the audience, not on a journey, as the performance is seated and in a fixed location, but on an adventure of sorts through time. From the dawning of humanity all the way through to the end of the world via witches, a surprising amount about rivers and letters to Godzilla. The big questions (life, death etc) are handled with a complete lack of regard for stories that have defined endings. Lengthy imaginings about James Nesbitt snuggle up against tall tales about magic mirrors.
There are also some more run-of-the-mill jokes about supermarkets and that kind of carry-on. Something for absolutely everyone, then! See you there!
