The very wonderful Bruiser Theatre Company makes a welcome return to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar with The Nose on Wednesday April 16 at 8pm.
Bruiser is back on the road with a hilarious comedy that shines a merciless light on the murky world of bureaucracy. Energetic, visually exciting, and very funny, The Nose is written by and stars long-term Bruiser collaborator Patrick J O’Reilly. 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 it 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. Directed by Lisa May, with all the dynamism of Bruiser’s brilliant trademark physical theatre.
