Fizzwack Theatre presents Misterman by Enda Walsh from November 21 – December 2 at the Bluestone Church Arts Space, Footscray.
Set in an Irish village called Inishfree, Enda Walsh’s Drama Desk Award winning play tells of one man’s journey towards judgment day.
Misterman is directed by award winning director Kris Weber and stars award winning actor Travis Handcock.
Thomas Magill is having a bad day – disembodied voices inhabit his thoughts, his mother has a cold, the dogs of hell are on his tail and Doris Day won’t shut up. But Thomas needs to watch because the people of Inishfree are misbehaving.
Misterman is a one man tour de force that examines the mind of a tortured soul hell-bent on retribution. Desperate and disturbed, Thomas is a cataclysmic force on speaking terms with the Lord.
Misterman is an astonishing piece of story telling by an incredibly talented playwright,” says director Kris Weber. “Enda Walsh has written a freight train of a tale with a protagonist who is wading neck deep in the murky waters of madness while the voices inside, and outside, his head are re-enacting a day in the life of the villagers in the Irish town of Inishfree. This is Thomas Magill’s town and these are his friends and neighbours but Thomas can see them for who they really are, and he understands that things can never be the same again. This is a powerful script that both challenges and mesmerizes and one that, as a director, I am very excited to be navigating with the talented Travis Handcock.
