Bruiser hasa nose for good comedy

Bruiser Theatre will be making a welcome return to the Island Arts Centre on Friday April 11 at 8pm with their latest show ‘The Nose’.

Friday, 18th April 2014, 5:26 pm

This hilarious comedy shines a merciless light on the murky world of bureaucracy and is written by and stars long-term Bruiser collaborator Patrick J. O’Reilly.

In this fresh new adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s classic short story, Alexey, a government bureaucrat, awakens one morning horrified to discover that his nose has run off. Join Alexey as he frantically tries to stop his runaway nose from causing him all manner of public humiliation and get back on his face.

From the Company that brought you the hugely popular ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’ and ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’, this new show will be fun, visually exciting and very funny.

It also preserves Gogol’s whimsical and humorous writing style and pokes fun at the incompetence of ‘the powers that be’ and the superficial nature of society’s ‘respectable’ classes.

Tickets, priced £14/12, are on sale now from the Island Arts Centre Box Office on 9250 9254 or online at
