'Good evening. My name is Mr Charles Pooter. I have long considered the question: why should I not make public my diary?'
Charles Pooter of Upper Holloway, a middle-class clerk with social aspirations far beyond his status, has decided the world deserves to hear his diary. He has one night, a troupe of actors and an empty stage to impart the woes of his humdrum existence to anyone who will listen.
Adapted from the Victorian comedy of manners by Hugh Osborne, Diary of a Nobody features a small cast uproariously recreating the trials and tribulations of Pooter's daily grind in Victorian London.
Premiered at Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton, this highly energetic adaptation is also ideal for amateur theatre companies wanting to stage a freewheeling version of a classic novel.
