After walking the wall in the West Bank, becoming Guinness World Record holder for political protests and chasing arms dealers around the country Mark Thomas turns his attention to matters closer to home with a show about his father.

First commissioned by the Royal Opera house Bravo Figaro is the true tale of a self-employed builder’s love of opera, degenerative illness and how to put opera on in a bungalow in Bournemouth.

It is about love, death and the search for peace in an imperfect world … with some gags thrown in for luck and told by one of the finest storytellers in the country.

“This powerful story was packed full of emotion, taking the audience on an incredible ride through the decades… an amazing tale. Absolutely superlative stuff.”Chortle.co.uk
