Here Comes Your Man (2013)
A Cabaret for the Contract Killer
Written and performed by Alex Roe, directed by Stephanie Speirs.
A theatrical cabaret with gripping music accompanied by original graphic novel-style artwork, this
brand new work will engage cabaret fans, entrance theatre buffs and entice anyone with a love for hit-man tales and the crime genre.
“There’s a place between life and death, and this is where the dead keep their stories. One such story belongs to X, a self-proclaimed misanthrope. In his life he was a killer by choice and by trade, with grand aspirations… but life is rarely about choice, and somewhere within every monster lies a spark of humanity.”
The group that brought you ‘Choir Girl’ and ‘Ad Nauseam’ returns to Fringe with this edgy theatrical cabaret; planting an antisocial character within an intimate medium to explore a life wasted. Dark, funny and beautiful – come meet the man, hear his story and revel in his glories.
