Common Ground Theatre Company
  • Duration:50 minutes (approx.)

The Dream of a Ridiculous Man, adapted by Pat Whymark from the short story by Dostoevsky .

A fantastical tale of new beginnings, featuring Julian Harries as the Ridiculous Man, with Pat Whymark and Emily Bennett providing live musical accompaniment. It tells the story of a man who, much like Scrooge in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, has a dream which saves his life, brings him back from the edge of despair, reconnects him to society and restores his faith in humanity. Its a poignant, funny and cathartic piece, particularly appropriate for this present moment in time.
