After his execution, Walter Raleigh’s widow carried his head around in a bag for thirty years. These days, that sort of thing is frowned upon. My Father’s Nose is a new play about a recently bereaved man struggling to let go of the past. Literally. It’s a play about parents and children, and how their relationships change over time. About how joy turns to grief, and back again. About memory, and how hard it can be to lose it, and how hard it can be when you can’t.
Douglas Walker returns to the Bristol Improv Theatre with his brand new play. Previous work includes improvising with Racing Minds, Completely Wonderful, Murder She Didn’t Write, and his acclaimed Christmas show Of Christmas Past.
“Exceptional…characters as self-assured as they are eloquent” The Skinny ★★★★
With Support from The Thoroughgoods
The Thoroughgoods are a local improv group, formed of graduates from the Bristol Improv Theatre. Their debut show Yesterday, with Jean Thoroughgood tells the life story of the titular Jean—a tale that is epic, comedic, tragic and unpredictable. Much like the Thoroughgoods themselves!
