Mark Thomas is doing a lockdown livestream of his 2013 multi-award winning show Bravo Figaro!, followed by a live Q&A, on Thursday 14th May at 7:30pm. Tickets are £5, in exchange for
This is a rare chance to catch Mark Thomas’s most poignant and most personal show about his father, a self-employed builder with a passion for opera, his degenerative illness, and Mark’s attempt to put an opera on in a bungalow in Bournemouth. It is about love, death, fathers and sons, and the search for peace in an imperfect world, with a few gags thrown in for luck.
Having been first commissioned by London’s prestigious Royal Opera House in 2012, Bravo Figaro went on to sell out at that year’s Edinburgh Festival, winning Mark his first Scotsman Fringe First Award alongside a Herald Angel Award and countless five and four star reviews. It was also broadcast on Radio 4 in 2013 and toured internationally.
Thomas has also just launched anew weekly podcast. In Things About Us Thomas looks at identity and British Exceptionalism in his inimitable style of wondering out loud and proclaiming. In this series of 6 (to be released each Monday) Mark looks at everything from The British Museum to the Chagos Islands and ask who the bloody hell do we think we are? How does it match to reality? And what are we going to do with the gap between the two? Listen to the first episode here.
