The Professor

15:20, 01 - 25 Aug

The university's oddest professor has made a remarkable discovery. He's thrilled – but why is his lecture today even stranger and wilder than ever? An odd, surreal comedy about Dickens, shipwrecks, the Venus de Milo, fainting poets and the perils of original thinking. By two-time Fringe First winner Brian Parks. Performed by Stage's Best Actor David Calvitto. 'A brilliant piece of writing' ( 'There is no American writer more thoughtful – in an explosive and surreally comic way' (Scotsman). 'Calvitto is one of the funniest, cleverest performers around' (Herald). 'One of the most-admired actors on the Fringe' (Scotsman).
