The Dream of a Ridiculous Man

Having had , like all theatre companies, over a year of twiddling their creative thumbs, Common Ground Theatre Company are gearing up for a joyous, yet cautious return to rural touring with their autumn tour of Dostoevsky's dream-like, redemptive tale.

A fantastical story of new beginnings, Julian Harries is the Ridiculous Man, with Pat Whymark and Emily Bennett providing live musical accompaniment. It tells the story of a man who, much like Scrooge in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, has a dream which saves his life, brings him back from the edge of despair, reconnects him to society and restores his faith in humanity. Its a poignant, funny and cathartic piece, particularly appropriate for this present moment in time.

“It takes real skill to take a sturdy piece of classic literature and turn it into one of the most imaginative shows of the year.” Andrew Clarke, reviewing our tour of The Count of Monte Cristo in the EADT

For audiences' peace of mind, social distancing will be maintained for our performances.
Starts at 7.45pm. Tickets Adult: £12 Under 21s £8 plus booking fee.
