The Underground Man

Mick Jackson; Adapted by Nick Wood

Aurora Metro Press

“A highly effective two-hander, with beautifully and suitably understated performances... A quietly strange, original and riveting piece of theatre.” — Nottingham Post

Stage adaptation of Mick Jackson's celebrated novel which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, the Whitbread First Novel Award and winner of the Royal Society of Authors' First Novel Award.

A life of fascination, obsession and deep scientific curiosity.

William Cavendish-Scott-Bentinck is an eccentric Nottinghamshire aristocrat whose imagination and curiosity know no bounds. This deceptively simple man struggles to come to terms with a world that is teeming with new knowledge, ill-founded opinion and gossip.

Why does he hide himself away? What is his fascination with tunnels? Will he ever unearth the secrets hidden in his memory?

In a sequence of events that are often curious and frequently hilarious, he reveals moments of surprising perception and wisdom. The Underground Man is a delectable blend of fact and fiction in which the intriguing details of a complex life are richly explored through the vibrant imagination of a gentle soul.
