The Massive Tragedy Of Madame Bovary

For your viewing pleasure, Peepolykus (Spyski, The Hound Of The Baskervilles) proudly present Gustave Flaubert’s masterpiece Madame Bovary. The ground-breaking nineteenth century novel will be brought spectacularly to life by this internationally acclaimed ensemble company, directed by Gemma Bodinetz.

Laugh and cry in equal measures as Emma Bovary chooses the wrong husband. Lose yourself in mesmeric love scenes featuring a stupendous collection of devastatingly handsome men. Question the impotence of women in a Victorian patriarchal society, if you want. Marvel at how many parts a Spanish man with limited English can play with only one moustache. There will be vermin, visual absurdity, wild animals and a nun.

Can the cast of five rise to the ridiculous challenge they have set themselves? It’s going to be hilarious. And serious. Possibly.
