Seeking actors who can play Monty Python-esque comedic characters in The Nosemaker’s Apprentice: Chronicles of a Medieval Plastic Surgeon. Actors should be able to be grounded in truthful playing while also willing to shamelessly take things as far as possible.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
A father weaves a magical tale for his daughter to justify his unlicensed plastic surgery practice, tracing the origins of cosmetic surgery to craftsmen in medieval Europe. The hero of this tale is Gavin, a young orphan rescued from the Ivanhoe Workhouse for Criminally Impoverished Boys when he is apprenticed with the local Nosemaker. Gavin becomes one of the finest surgeons in Vienna, using innovative skin grafting techniques and cutting-edge alchemy, but when he is unable to help a powerful and mutilated knight recently returned from the crusades, he finds his feet over the fire… literally.
