Everyone walks down a road that eventually comes to an end. But how do we bid farewell to everything we’ve known? Discover how an aging puppet hangs up his strings in preparation for perpetual retirement in A Day in November, a sensitive yet comical work of puppet theatre for adults.
Bulgarian actor and puppeteer Rumen Gavanozov pays a visit to “the old man,” a puppet who has existed for so long that he has forgotten almost everything. It is with Gavanozov’s help that the old man re-discovers the purpose of the objects that surround him as he prepares to leave the life he once knew.
Praise for A Day in November:
“A beautifully controlled and tenderly delivered reflection on the mind’s descent towards death… one of the most astonishing shows I have seen in three years at Edinburgh.”
- Ben Blyth, Broadway Baby
“Like most good comedy, A Day in November is full of truth and also succeeds in making it possible for us both to reflect upon and laugh at this truth.”
- Chamonix Thurston-Rattue, Informed Edinburgh
“Rumen Gavanozov is a masterful storyteller, and, although this sad tale is his puppet’s, we learn as much about the wild-haired Bulgarian’s own compassion and humour as we do about the little green man.”
- Lauren Paxman, The Stage
