More about The Guitar Man
"The action in The Guitar Man by Ferske Scener is simple: A street singer taking a little break – a breather the mundane repetitions of daily life.
Ferske Scener shows its audience 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 is the first theatre monologue written by Jon Fosse."
