World premier Saturday 15 March 2014

Adapted for the stage by Jack McNamara

A hilarious one man show about saying the wrong thing . . .

Him with is foot in his mouth

Jack MvNamara

New Perspective’s previous one-man shows have been extremely well-received by you, including last year’s ‘Christmas Carol’ which was very warmly praised by audiences and promoters alike.

The company have built up a great reputation for their one-man shows by using excellent writers and directors and realising that if there’s only one actor on stage then they need to be good!

They continue this high standard with an adaptation of a short story by Pulitzer prize winning novelist Saul Bellow.

It’s quirky, funny, moving show for adults and young teenagers and is a situation that many of us will identify with – a chance moment where something we said or did lingers on our conscience for years to come.

Harry Shawmut is a man who sometimes says things he shouldn’t. He once made a rude comment to a woman in passing and now, years later, he wants to apologise. But saying sorry isn’t always that simple…

Harry’s apology involves him describing a hilarious, surprising and moving life story that helps explain why we sometimes say the things we shouldn’t.

This is also a chance to book a world premiere, as New Perspectives don’t think any other work by this great US author has ever been adapted for the English stage.
