The Grand Gesture

TGG_TITLE_TREATMENT_300DPI

By Deborah McAndrew

Freely adapted from The Suicide by Nikolai Erdman

Directed by Conrad Nelson

Designed by Dawn Allsopp

Lighting by Mark Howland

Musical Director: Rebekah Hughes

Simeon Duff is unemployed, broke and desperate. His wife works. He’s lost all self esteem.
He’s on the scrap heap and wants to end it all

… and so begins this brilliantly insane comedy about a man on the edge.

When word gets out that Duff is going to top himself, a host of ne’er-do-wells crawl out of the woodwork, each wanting to claim his grand gesture for their ‘noble cause’. Let’s face it, why waste a death? But which cause shall it be … love, politics, religion, or the rising price of fish? Will the disillusioned Duff go through with it? Watch and see … the suspense will kill you, if you don’t die laughing first.
Conrad Nelson directs a large cast of actor musicians in a riotous evening of comic mayhem and exquisite farce, complete with a gypsy band and heavenly choir. Think Rising Damp meets Father Ted.
 
“A stunning production” The Stage (on The Canterbury Tales, directed by Conrad Nelson)
