The Massive Tragedy of Madame Bovary

3 Male, 1 Female

John Nicholson & Javier Marzan from Flaubert Price: $12.99

Peepolykus (pronounced people-like-us) is one of the UK's most exciting touring theatre companies, creating comic theatre with proven national and international appeal

The company style is an exhilarating collision of anarchic verbal slapstick, visual surprises, absurd scenarios and sublimely ridiculous comic performances, drawing comparisons with The Crazy Gang, Marx Brothers, Buster Keaton and Monty Python

Following their tremendously popular take on Hound of the Baskervilles, this time Peepolykus bring their exhilarating combination of verbal slapstick, visual surprise and zany comedy to Gustave Flaubert's masterpiece ...

Laugh and cry in equal measure as Emma Bovary chooses the wrong husband

Lose yourself in mesmeric love scenes featuring a procession of devastatingly attractive men

Rail at the fate of women in a patriarchal society

But prepare yourself for vermin, moustaches, and wild animals

And lots of French people

And a nun

Written for a bijou cast of four playing multiple roles, this offers abundant opportunities for comedy and slapstick - plus some Massive Tragedy - to any theatre company or drama group looking for a loving derailment of a classic novel
