Stacy Makishi: The Falsettos

Saturday 19 October 2013, 17:30 to 18:30

Bristol welcomes the inimitable Stacy Makishi with a stunning new solo show, The Falsettos, a deftly woven mix of text, movement and stand-up.

With: Stacy Makishi

An honest and hilarious display of Makishi’s intimate reflections on murder, mortality and mid-life crisis, The Falsettos splices together influences from American popular culture including The Sopranos, Barbra Streisand and E.T. 

Makishi navigates a soulful connection with the depressed mafia mobster Tony Soprano of TV fame, taking in therapy, a longing for home and a poignant conviction to ‘never stop believing’ along the way. With mobs, midlife, lowlife and taboo getting the Makishi treatment, this is a show for our times - uncompromising, compassionate and joyously absurd.

Commissioned by Chelsea Theatre, Colchester Arts Centre and The Basement support by The Roddick Foundation. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Produced by Artsadmin.

Age guidance : 16+
