A hilarious one man show about saying the wrong thing…

Henry Shawmut is a man who often says things he shouldn’t. He once made an unkind comment to a lady in passing and now, years later, he had decided to apologise. But saying sorry isn’t always that straightforward. Harry uses us, the theatre audience, to help rehearse the most elaborate apology in history, taking us through the contours of his hilarious, shocking and uniquely moving life story.

This heartwarming production marks the first UK stage adaptation of a work by the Nobel Prize-winning American writer Saul Bellow. A forefather of modern jewish humour, he paved the way for Woody Allen, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Please Note: There will be a post-show discussion with Judie Newman, School of American Studies, The University of Nottingham.
