A three bridges production
Based on the novel by GK Chesterton
Adapted & directed by Giles Burton
A gripping and sharp-witted adaptation of the thriller in which nothing is what it seems. This is fast paced, and totally compelling theatre.
Adapted by local director Giles Burton, The Man Who Was Thursday has received awards and high praise at both NZ and international festivals. Nelson actor Pete Coates plays all 20 characters (and an elephant), with reviewers describing his instant transition from one character to another as ‘close to flawless’. Each character has its own accent, traits and personality, all of which shine through Coates’ ‘brilliant performance’ to make each utterly distinct.
“This is truly a tour de force. Bravo!!”
