Writer : Aki Kaurismaki
(adapted for stage by Jack McNamara)
Director : Jack McNamara
One minute you know who you are, where you are and what you are doing. The next minute your mind's a blank slate...
We meet our anti-hero near a shoreline, abandoned with no memory of his name or past life. Taken in by an eccentric community, with a disused shipping container for a home, he begins an accidental romance whilst adapting to his new way of life. But the past doesn't leave him alone for long...
Featuring a cracking live soundtrack, this part melancholic love story, part deliciously deadpan comedy takes you on one man's extraordinary journey from anonymity to unexpected salvation.
Following on from the success of Lars Von Trier's The Boss of it All (Terrific! The Guardian), Jack McNamara cleverly adapts this Cannes Grand Prix award-winning film comedy by one of Finland's greatest modern storytellers.
A delicious blend of hilarity and heart break
