Nelson Fringe: The Man Who Was Thursday

Monday 27th-Tuesday 28th June 2022

How a humble poet defeats The Man who Organises All Anarchy.

Gabrial Syme is recruited into the Philosopher Police to infiltrate the Supreme Anarchist Council and reveal the shocking truth. Pete Coates plays all twenty characters (and an elephant) as they chase across Europe to defeat the dreaded Sunday, the man who stops Anarchy falling into chaos.
