Umbrella Man

20:00, 03 May

A tragicomic fable about a man who tries to prove that the Earth is flat, with mixed results.

Using poetry, storytelling and music to take audiences on a journey to the outer limits of common sense, Umbrella Man is a daft, dreamy, unmissable piece of spoken-word theatre from one of Scotland's most exciting new performance collectives.

Performed to packed houses at Prague and Edinburgh Fringes, Umbrella Man comes to Assembly Roxy fresh from a critically-acclaimed tour of Australia and New Zealand. Written and performed by poet, musician and raconteur Colin Bramwell, with sound design from Rob MacNeacail. The show is produced by Teuchter Company.

★★★★

'The performance is rich and memorable, but it’s the layered storytelling that leaves a lasting impression.'

Fest Magazine
 
★★★★

'The entirety of the show seems to be written entirely in verse and not a singular syllable sounds out of place. Umbrella Man is well executed and well worth your time.'

Collage Adelaide
 
★★★★

'A goofily funny, tender show. Bramwell is a delightful raconteur with a beautiful voice for delivering the spoken word.'
