Buy Tickets The Grand Gesture


Northern Broadsides in partnership with Harrogate Theatre
By Deborah McAndrew
Freely adapted from The Suicide by Nikolai Erdman
Directed by Conrad Nelson

Duration: approx 2 hours 30 mins (includes 20 min interval)

Simeon Duff is working class, unemployed and desperate.
His wife works.
He’s lost all self esteem.
He’s on the scrap heap and wants to end it all... and so begins this brilliantly insane comedy about a man on the edge.
 
When word gets out that Duff is going to top himself, a host of ne’er-do-wells crawl out of the woodwork, each wanting to claim his grand gesture for their ‘noble cause’. Let’s face it, why waste a death? But which cause shall it be … love, politics, religion, or the rising price of fish?
 
Will the disillusioned Duff go through with it?
Will he really top himself for a dubious cause?
Is he worth it?
Watch and see … the suspense will kill you, if you don’t die laughing first.

Here's a little teaser for you...



 
Conrad Nelson (The Government Inspector, Lisa’s Sex Strike, The Canterbury Tales and Accidental Death of an Anarchist) directs a large cast of charismatic northern actor-musicians in a riotous evening of comic mayhem and exquisite farce, complete with a gypsy band and heavenly choir. The perfect answer to a long winter evening in Austerity Britain and brought to you by the multi-award winning Northern Broadsides, think ‘Rising Damp’ meets ‘Monty Python’ with a pinch of ‘Mrs Browns Boys’.
