An event every day that begins at 8:00pm, repeating until Sat 16 Sep 2017
Following the storming success of award-winning productions, The Confetti Maker/ Goodbye Gunther, Frank Wurzinger and John Wright are back again with Me, Me, Me: a small tale of narcissism and over-inflated egos.
Me, Me, Me is an exploration of Echo and Narcissus with a modern twist: mobile phones, social media, selfie sticks, slapstick, and a huge ego. A Tremendous Show. With an Unbelievably Talented Star, who created it all Himself, really, no one else. This Amazing Show Makes Theatre Great Again.
‘Like the best clowns, Frank Wurzinger does not wear a red nose or big shoes. Instead, he evokes the pathos of human life through a self-conscious vulnerability, a mastery of characterisation and the occasional pratfall’ THE LIST
‘a show full of surprises be they funny, absurd or evocative. Wurzinger is as capable of breaking into a goose–step whilst juggling plates as he is to give birth to a baby of amassed shredded paper’ BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
