North Highland College HNC students present theatre inspired by the work of Richard Brautigan
North Highland College HNC Acting and Performance students present a piece of contemporary devised theatre created from the work of American Poet Richard Brautigan (1935-1984). Brautigan was an American author often linked with the Beat Generation and known for his idiosyncratic yet easy to read prose style. His work was an offbeat combination of imagination, humour and satire described through unusual and detailed observation.
“Brautigan is good for you. No writer you can think of is quite like him today, nor was any writer anytime – unless you can imagine the kind of things Mark Twain might have written had he wandered into a field of ripe cannabis with a pack of Zig Zag papers in his pocket. That’s about as close as I can come to Brautigan, a kind of cracker-barrel surrealist whose humor is essentially Nineteenth-Century Western American.”
– Bruce Cook The National Observer
