About The Guitar Man
The guitar man came to the town where he lives because of a woman, and he stayed because of a son. Year after year he has been standing in his underpass, singing his songs for people who do not always want to listen. He has now reached a crossroads. The Guitar Man is a play about daring the unknown and to move on.
The plot of The Guitar Man is simple: A street singer taking a break, a breather from the trivialities and repetitions of daily life. He is a middle-aged man midway into an existential crisis. During the play he confronts his life. He makes a final decision and he acts on it.
The Guitar Man is a production about the necessity of making choices. There is a time for everything, including giving in. Facing defeat may let you see something else entirely different.
The Guitar Man was Jon Fosse's first theatre monologue.
