HOUSE OF ORPHANS Presents
Howard and Janet Shirley live an average, humdrum life in an average Northern town in England. But Howard has an anything-but-average talent: a photographic memory that he uses to win a TV quiz show.
With his winnings, he and Janet travel the world in style, seeing everything they can. But upon their return, a disillusioned Howard makes a sinister proposition to Janet.
Adapted from Anthony Burgess' (author of 'A Clockwork Orange') 1961 novel, this darkly comic story is a hilarious and provocative condemnation of culture and the modern world.
"A THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE NIGHT OF THEATRE IN A MARRIAGE OF NOSTALGIA AND DARK COMEDY."
"DARINGLY SURREAL AND INNOVATIVELY EXECUTED!"
What's On Stage
"SHARP AND MORDANTLY FUNNY."
"LUCIA COX'S ADAPTATION EFFECTIVELY BRINGS A LESSER-KNOWN ANTHONY BURGESS NOVEL TO STAGE, AND PROVIDES AN ENTERTAINING EVENING."
