To help raise funds for a Planning Application, different groups of musicians, artists, makers and performers have been staging events in Lewes.
Thanks to a handy connection, Lewes Phoenix Rising is now proud to present a play that has been receiving superlative reviews in London:
“The Diary of a Nobody”
The Diary of a Nobody is a fictional account of the daily life of Mr Charles Pooter, a middle-aged City of London clerk. The original book on which this play is based was written by George Grossmith and illustrated by his brother Weedon in the late-1880s and was originally serialised in Punch.
It’s a comedy about the Little Man. Just like a great many of us, Mr Pooter is a Nobody who feels he deserves to be a Somebody…
This performance is a new adaptation by the highly acclaimed Rough Haired Pointer company who have been playing to packed houses in London recently (but happily agreed to this little sojourn in the country to support Pheonix Rising).
Remote Goat ★★★★★ ‘Heart-warming with ingenious comic timing, this is a production that will leave you chuckling down the street.’
The Upcoming ★★★★★ ‘So, easy-going, so enjoyable, Franklin’s The Diary of a Nobody is evocative of being in the Tuscan region of Italy – relaxed, delightful and charming.’
The Public Reviews ★★★★ and a half ‘The comic timing is impeccable, the silences are awkward, the asides to the audience are sincere, the sound effects are funny, and there are running gags…’
Everything Theatre ★★★★ ‘The cast members work incredibly well together, and have a wonderful ability to improvise and play off each other.’
ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY – 4pm on Sunday 29th June.
There are just 100 seats available! All seats are £5 (plus whatever Eventbrite charges).
Drinks will be available before the performance and at the interval. You are recommended to arrive around 3:30pm.
** Older children should also find the play funny but it does last two hours (with a 15 minute interval).
All ticket money goes to Lewes Phoenix Rising.
