FAT MAN – Move to Stand in association with LittleMighty
Orpheus is doing stand-up for the gods.
A sharp new take on a classic Greek myth, this is a bitterly funny story of love, loss and eating your way out of grief. As the audience are transformed into the gods of legend, will Orpheus ever escape his past?
The award-winning Move to Stand are back with a black comedy that bridges the everyday with the celestial.
Martin Bonger (NIE’s North North North, The Plasticine Men’s Keepers) delivers a gripping solo performance. There might even be a song.
First performed at Ovalhouse in July 2014. Created in association with North Wall Oxford, Live Theatre Newcastle and South Street, Reading.
