Peepolykus with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, Nuffield, Bristol Old Vic and Royal & Derngate, Northampton
The Massive Tragedy of Madame Bovary!
Gustave Flaubert’s complex novel lovingly derailed by Peepolykus.
★★★★ Liverpool ECHO ★★★★ The Stage
★★★★★ Liverpool Sound and Vision
For your viewing pleasure, Peepolykus (No Wise Men, The Hound of the Baskervilles) proudly present Gustave Flaubert’s masterpiece Madame Bovary. The seminal Nineteenth Century novel will be brought spectacularly to life by director Madame Bodinetz and her bijou cast (with a fair amount of doubling).
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 four rise to the ridiculous challenge they have set themselves? It's going to be hilarious. And bloody serious. Possibly.
"Peepolykus are unfailingly hilarious"
