Fritters, Blinis & Bristin: an Evening of Comedy
An acclaimed UK comedy cast of actor-musicians concoct an evening of absurd delight.
£20, £15 concessions
An acclaimed UK comedy cast of actor-musicians concoct an evening of absurd delight, interspersed with silly songs of the Russian steppes and the Plain of the Po.
In this brand-new English-language production of Fo’s early farce One was Nude & One wore Tails, a zany comedy of dustbin men, naked ambassadors and nocturnal slapstick, undressing the social hierarchy.
Before writing his famous plays, Anton Chekhov was known first as a writer of vaudevilles, short comedies on themes of love, marriage and domestic absurdity. The Bear, Swansong and The Evils of Tobacco, are three of his finest, funniest vaudevilles, prove a perfect counterpoint to Milanese commedia, Chekhov’s favourite fritters and blinis to Fo’s bristin.
Butcher has drawn lifelong inspiration from the Italian theatre legend Dario Fo: from his acclaimed anti-war satire The Madness of George Dubya to his globally renowned solo masterpiece Scaramouche Jones, Butcher’s unique blend of passion, provocation and mischief, has evolved in explicit emulation of the Milanese commedia maestro.
