4 male actors, 45 mix gender roles, a stage full of props, a party, a brawl, a broken engagement and a lot of bad puns.
This is a comedy of lovingly controlled chaos.
Evelyn Waugh called The Diary of a Nobody ‘the funniest book in the world'.
First published in the 1800s, it tells the story of a self-important but tender-hearted Victorian office-worker.
Mr. Pooter never loses his sense of humour as he is made to deal with the trails of everyday life - a wayward son, trouble at the office, house hold improvements gone wrong and the annoyance of catching your foot in the mat whilst trying to leave the room in silent dignity.
This cult Victorian novel is transformed into an uproarious comedy through inventive and imaginative staging.
Balancing moments of wild humour against the insightful depiction of an ordinary life and happy marriage, this is a show with a surreal comic flair and a strongly beating emotional heart.
