London: A Stretch of the Imagination



See Australian legendary actor ‘Mark Little’ in the UK premiere of Jack Hibberd's classic play.


Mark Little plays the irascible anti-hero Monk O’Neill - philosopher and yarn-spinner, heroic battler and individualist, satirical revolutionist, cultured man-of-letters and bon-vivant. This vibrant poetic monologue introduces us to the painfully lonely world of Monk O’Neill and his memories as he faces death alone, but with humour and resilience. The audience will be immersed in Monk’s world and The Cock Tavern Theatre in Kilburn will be transformed into the Australian bush. A true stretch of the imagination.
