“A quietly strange, original and riveting piece of theatre.” Nottingham Post
Following a sell-out run at Nottingham Playhouse watch this free-flowing, innovative performance.
The Fifth Duke of Portland, is an eccentric Nottinghamshire aristocrat whose imagination and curiosity know no bounds. This deceptively simple man struggles to come to terms with a world that is teeming with new knowledge, ill-founded opinion and gossip.
Why does he hide himself away? What is his fascination with tunnels? Will he ever unearth the secrets hidden in his memory?
In a sequence of events that are often curious and frequently hilarious he reveals moments of surprising perception and wisdom.
Ajtc and Nottingham Playhouse have combined their talents to co-produce a stage adaptation of Mick Jackson’s Booker prize short-listed novel. The result is a free-flowing performance which feature live music and a specially commissioned score.
“Tour de force performances.” Theatre World
“The Underground Man’ is a delectable blend of fact and fiction in which the intriguing details of a complex life are richly explored through the vibrant imagination of a gentle soul.”
“A must see.” **** East Midlands Theatre
An EXTRAORDINARY story of a man as full of humanity as idiosyncrasy. Wonderfully played!
