Frank Wurzinger presents Goodbye Günther
When Günther Obermaier finds out that he has not long left to live, he starts to live his life to the full. We are charmed by his optimism and appalled by his denial as he prepares for the end. This is a funny, moving and ultimately life affirming one man show about death and grief.
Bizarre, ridiculous and irreverent but never trivialising its subject matter. We laugh at Günther but we never lose sight of his humanity. A charming mix of physical comedy, pathos, tragedy and utter nonsense brought to you from the team of the remarkably enjoyable ‘Confetti Maker’.
Written and performed by Frank Wurzinger
