The Man without a Past

About

New Perspectives Theatre presents: The Man without a Past

Written by Aki Kaurismäki, adapted for the stage and directed by Jack McNamara.

One minute you know who you are. The next minute your mind's a blank slate...

The lives of an eclectic community living in abandoned shipping containers are thrown upside down when a mysterious man arrives. With no memory of his name or former life, they begin to help him to find his feet. Whilst a daily serving of soup from a local charity worker begins to nourish his heart and soul, the surprise rediscovery of his past puts his new life in jeopardy.

Featuring a soundtrack from songs of praise to sultry jazz, this part-melancholic love story, part-deliciously deadpan comedy takes you on one man's extraordinary journey from anonymity to unexpected salvation.

Following on from the success of Lars Von Trier's The Boss of it All ('Terrific!' - The Guardian), Jack McNamara cleverly adapts this Cannes Grand Prix award-winning film comedy by one of Finland's greatest modern storytellers.

'A delicious blend of hilarity and heart break' - Rolling Stone on Kaurismäki's film
