Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness archiveIn 1881, the famed and enigmatic impresario Mr Edward Gant presented his renowned travelling show for the final time. The opiate-addicted actor manager showcased his troupe creating a spectacle of grotesquery, black comedy, mystery and magic realism. Over a century later, playwright Anthony Neilson has reconstructed this intriguing and fantastic historical event in a theatrical piece that combines the melodrama and extravagance with the painful loneliness that characterised a Victorian freak show. Neilson's play offers a strange and beautiful exploration of sadness and mortality, probing even the nature of theatre itself. A tragic farce of colour and melancholy, this is not one to be missed... In 2009, Anthony Neilson and Headlong Theatre are proud to present a reconstruction of this historic and extraordinary evening of mystery and magic, spectacle and strangeness. Behold... The Amazing Feats of Loneliness! Neilson (last at Soho with God in Ruins) is one of Britain’s most acclaimed playwrights, creating bold and pioneering new work. Edward Gant’s Amazing Feats of Loneliness is a funny and theatrical exploration of beauty, mortality and wonder.
