“Art is a
cupboard! We are not cakes!”

Award winning
Clout Theatre invites you to dive head first into the absurd world of the
Russian poet, iconoclast and false moustache wearer Daniil Kharms.

Three bouffonesque characters intent on
telling ‘The Old Woman’ story let
narrative escape them as comic vignettes, metaphysical ponderings and bouts of
senseless violence provide constant distraction. Expressionist silent film meets grotesque
slapstick in a world where clocks have no hands and a cucumber can kill a man.

Winner: Physical
Fest Audience Award 2012

Nominated: Total Theatre Awards 2012
