"Marvellous! What a brilliant one man show. The man's a fine talent...Absolutely superb - spell binding performance and very good props" Harry wants to apologise to a woman he was rude to years ago, but saying sorry isn’t always that simple. Adapted from a story by Saul Bellow, this hilarious and moving play helps explain why we sometimes say things we shouldn’t.New Perspectives Theatre Company is highly respected on the touring circuit, bringing high quality theatre productions to community venues for many years. Now the team behind The Lovesong of Alfred J. Hitchcock, A Christmas Carol, Farm Boy or How Steeple Sinderby Won the FA Cup bring a hilarious one man show about saying the wrong thing…
Harry Shawmut is a man who often says things he shouldn't. He once made an unkind comment to a lady in passing and now, years later, he has decided to apologise. But saying sorry isn't always that straightforward. Harry uses us, the audience, to rehearse the most elaborate apology in history, taking us through the contours of his hilarious, shocking and uniquely moving life story.
This heart-warming new production marks the first ever UK stage adaptation of a work by the great American writer Saul Bellow. Born in 1915, the three times winner of the National Book Award and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, was one of the forefathers of modern Jewish humour, paving the way for Woody Allen, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Please note that this production contains some strong language.
