The Nose (Fat Git Theatre)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Pervading this play is a strong energy – the constant complex movement of the large cast and the accompanying music power the audience through what’s an otherwise vapid production. The plot ostensibly concerns a Russian major who finds his nose missing; spotting it posing as a government official he gives chase. The play is humorous and well produced – the stage is impressively framed by a large white sheet which is stained with blood, snot, and other fluids that seep and merge together. However, it signifies nothing beyond, perhaps, an allusion to the innards of a nose. In this manner, although it is an enjoyable performance, there is no greater significance to the play’s events, and it ultimately feels devoid of a core.
