In this acclaimed one-man show, a Russian civil servant moves from obsession to psychosis, while two little dogs write letters to each other. Fail Better’s adaptation of Gogol’s Diary of a Madman was first seen in London (Best Fringe Show of 2007, Time Out) and more recently at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2009 with outstanding reviews.
Discords is Fail Better’s devised new work which freely adapts Shakespeare in a theatrical language inspired by the work of Samuel Beckett. A highly innovative staging sees disembodied heads emerging from a cabinet of curiosities to re-tell their ‘rooted sorrow’.
