The extraordinarily ordinary Charles Pooter has written a diary, and he wants to share it with you… Charles Pooter of Upper Holloway, a middle-class clerk with aspirations way beyond his status (and ability), has decided that publishing his diary is not enough. The public deserves to have it performed to them! Granted the use of a fading music hall and a troupe of local amateur thespians, he has just one night to recreate the trials and tribulations of his daily life for posterity and our collective fascination. Join us for your chance to hear about such thrilling escapades as: ‘Tripping over the boot scraper…again’ and ‘The perils of painting your own bath.’
A frenetic and frequently daft adaptation of this Victorian comedy of manners.
Suitable for ages 7+.
Join us after the performance on Wednesday 21 November for a post-show Q&A with the director and member of the cast.
This is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
