The Man with the Flower in his Mouth
by Luigi Pirandello
An all-night café, just gone midnight. A traveller waits peacefully for her morning train. A man appears. The man with the flower in his mouth – a clown, a mad-man, a philosopher – strikes up a conversation, and turns her world upside down.
This production was first staged in New Cross in Autumn 2010, in association with the Greenwich Theatre. It then touring cafés throughout the UK in April/May 2011 in association with Jacksons Lane, Oxford Playhouse & Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds.
