Sam was a seemingly content and quiet man until the day a simple, decisive ‘SWAT!’ shakes him from his dormant existence.
From then on nothing can contain Sam’s energy; all the creature comforts which kept him occupied until that day are pushed aside by a new force.
The Fly in the Ointment is a short story about awakening and about how annoying things can often be our most precious source of understanding.
In this production Roman Flowers Theatre Company uses story telling and physical theatre to deliver a dynamic and engaging performance on La mama’s new forecourt steps.
