Fat Man by Martin Bonger at the Vault Festival
Move to Stand in association with LittleMighty present Fat Man, written and performed by Martin Bonger at the Vaults in Waterloo, as part of the Vault Festival from 28 January to 15 February 2015.
Alex Swift directs this reimagining of one of the most iconic characters of Greek Mythology, as Orpheus becomes a flailing, overeating musician-turned-comedian, presenting his familiar story as an autobiographical standup routine. The production also features designs by Harriet De Winton and music by Philippe Nash.
Originally premiering at the Ovalhouse in July 2014, it is described as "a sharp new take on a classic Greek myth, a 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?"
Performed by Martin Bonger whose theatre credits include 'Around the World in 80 Days' by NIE (Cambridge Junction), 'The Spellbound Horses' (BBC Radio 4) and 'Of Women and Horses I Have Known' (Camden People’s Theatre).
