Based on the short story by Nikolai Gogol
Directed by Lisa May
Bruiser Theatre Company is back on the road with this hilarious comedy that shines a merciless light on the murky world of bureaucracy, written by and starring long-term Bruiser collaborator Patrick J. O’Reilly. This great new show will be fun, fast, visually exciting and very funny.
In this fresh new adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s classic short story, Alexey, a government bureaucrat, awakens one morning horrified to discover that his nose has run off! Join Alexey as he frantically tries to stop his runaway nose from causing him all manner of public humiliation and get back on his face! This adaptation preserves Gogol’s whimsical and humorous writing style and pokes fun at the incompetence of ‘the powers that be’ and the superficial nature of society’s ‘respectable’ classes.
This is the fourth visit of Bruiser to the Swallow Theatre - previous Bruiser productions here were The Government Inspector, Low Pay? Don't Pay and Cooking with Elvis

European Arts Company presents
Trials of Oscar Wilde
A dramatisation of the libel and criminal trials of Oscar Wilde in 1895. Based on the original court transcripts, we see the most flamboyant character of his age in the flesh and in his own words. The play charts his dramatic downfall with wit, humanity and high drama.
