The Guitar Man

About The Guitar Man

Everything has its time, a man and a piece of music...

A man makes his living singing the same songs day after day on the edge of town. He plays to an audience that is always passing him by. On a Winter’s night, he tells us his story. Searching for answers to his past, present and future, he reaches a decision: to stop playing. In a world made up of winners and losers, The Guitar Man asks what is left when we reject the role we are expected to play?

One of Europe’s foremost playwrights, Norwegian writer, Jon Fosse, speaks to a post-industrial society in crisis, where rootlessness and homelessness are the common experience.

Weaving text, song and silence, this tender study of a so-called 'outsider' traces the delicate balance between loneliness and longing, loss and salvation.

Please note that this performance will be audio described.
Headsets are available from our Box Office.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Guitar Man are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
