A Little Nonsense

Mon 21st – Fri 25th Jul 2014


“A bare-knuckle look at the sharp edge of funny.”





Juncture Theatre


A bare-knuckle look at the sharp edge of funny, A Little Nonsense is an original black comedy that explores the clown inside every man and the mirth that is hidden in melancholy.

Bitterly frustrated by a clown’s freedom to play and inability to take life seriously, a man has taken it upon himself to teach this clown a lesson and beat some sense into him. Through mime, slapstick, poetry and music, A Little Nonsense follows the farcical, haunting and abstract relationship of this unloving and tortured double-act and celebrates the importance of having light and shade within our lives.

A Little Nonsense draws on the melancholy and slapstick of Buster Keaton, the frustrations of language in Samuel Beckett, and the wry wit of Spike Milligan to create a unique and ballsy dark comedy in which the audience is led between moments of hilarity, violence and dark surrealism.

“Genuinely faultless… An outstanding piece of theatre.”

Broadway Baby

“It’s rare to discover a show which succeeds in balancing genuine hilarity and powerful drama, but Juncture Theatre certainly managed it... A real gem of a show.”
