One-man show puts foot in it

A one-man theatre show will be arriving in the Daventry district as part of a tour of the country.

The Nottingham-based company New Perspectives will be presenting Him With His Foot in His Mouth at Old Village Hall near Brixworth on Friday, April 4.

It tells the story of Harry Shawmut, a man who sometimes says things he shouldn’t.

He once made a rude comment to a woman in passing and now, years later, he wants to apologise. But saying sorry isn’t always that simple...

Harry’s apology involves him describing a hilarious, surprising and moving life story that helps explore exactly why we sometimes say the things we shouldn’t.

This beautifully written show stars Stephen Chance and quickly demonstrates why Saul Bellow is largely considered to be one of the greatest American authors of the twentieth century.

It will be performed from 7.30pm and tickets can be booked by calling the box office on 07867 778073.
