My Uncle Arly on the stage

icBirmingham, commenting on the program for the Evening Mail Birmingham Comedy Festival, reports that “the Hoipolloi theatre company looks to the work of writer Edward Lear for inspiration in the absurd yet delightful comic journey, My Uncle Arly (8 Oct).”

The show will then travel to Belfast:

There is a real treat for families this October; in association with Young at Art, OMAC presents the Northern Irish premiere of My Uncle Arly, by Hoipolloi and Tiebreak Theatre. Inspired by the illustrations, life and nonsense poems of Edward Lear, the performance weaves together Lear’s poetry with original songs and comic recreations of some of his best loved characters. That little lot look so good, I could almost write a Limerick about them.
