The Man Who Was Thursday tells the story of Gabriel Syme, a poet who is recruited into the Philosopher Police to fight the forces of anarchy and those who organise it.

In a theatrical tour de force, one actor, Pete Coates, takes on 20 roles (and an elephant) in this rollercoaster ride featuring double-crossing secret agents, chases across the French countryside and duelling swords.

The show was listed as one of the Best Six at Wellington Fringe by RNZ National, got rave reviews at Prague Fringe Festival, and won best show, best performer and best director on its debut at the 2019 Nelson Fringe Festival.

“brilliant and hilarious...Fast paced and totally compelling” Broadway World
“A masterclass in theatrical excellence...close to flawless”. Echoes from the Wings
Nelson Fringe Festival is using 2021 as a year to re-group, re-energise and create building blocks for the future, by thinking a bit laterally, a bit sideways, and a bit backwards. It’s part of the constant challenge of figuring what being a Fringe is all about.
