WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
An hilarious one man show about saying the wrong thing... Harry Shawmut is a man who often says things he shouldn't. He once made an unkind comment to a lady in passing and now, years later, he has decided to apologise. But saying sorry isn't always that straightforward. Harry uses us, the theatre audience, to help rehearse the most elaborate apology in history, taking us through the contours of his hilarious, shocking and uniquely moving life story.
This heart-warming new production marks the first ever UK stage adaptation of a work by the great American writer Saul Bellow. Three times winner of the National Book Award and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Bellow is one of the forefathers of modern Jewish humour, paving the way for Woody Allen, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Contains some strong language. Suitable for adults and older children aged 14+
