The Chief

The Chief

The Chief. Audio Comedy Nigel Planer stars as Oscar the 10 Downing Street cat. As recent events have revealed, the most important character in Downing Street is not the PM but the cat. In this case Chief Mauser OSCAR, the furriest of all Civil Servants, the witty and opinionated observer of all events inside and outside. Oscar keenly comments on the previous reign as the ousted PM is preparing to leave, making way for a very new regime. Wonderfully indiscreet, Oscar (Nigel Planer) reveals all…. This satirical tale of a world leader unable to accept defeat is as relevant in 2021 as it was the day it was written. Nigel Planer has appeared in many West End musicals, and is well-known on British television for his role of Neil in The Young Ones. He takes the starring role in The Chief, playing Oscar. “Cookson has his finger on the pulse of both American and British politics. Amazingly, The Chief was begun before Donald Trump took office… Smart, topical, pointed, pity, funny and entertaining while giving the listener things to ponder.”Broadway to Vegas The Chief Audio Comedy Nigel Planer written by Oliver Cookson Starring Nigel Planer, Rachel Atkins, Stephen Critchlow, Gerard McDermott, Simon Kane, Greg Page, Pip Brignall, Holly Morgan, Zalie Burrow.

Diary of a Madman

Diary of a Madman

The Diary of a Madman. Set in St Petersburg at the time of the Czar, Gogol’s black comedy sees the clerk Poprishchin sharpening endless quills for his boss while fantasising wildly about the boss’s daughter. In the insane bureaucratic hierarchy of 19th century Russia, rung after rung stretches above and minion after minion competes below with our poor protagonist whose life is empty of everything but obsessive work and ambition. With surreal wit and darkly absurd humour (dogs, noses and Spain all loom large in Poprishchin’s slide into delusion), this loser’s Hamlet explores the gulf between who we are and who we dream we might be. Matthew Jure is an award winning actor whose critically acclaimed roles have included the amnesiac man in arthouse film Undertow, obsessive-destructive mathematician Septimus Hodge in Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia and the title role in Macbeth. Matthew has been nominated for five awards and has won three: Best Newcomer (BIRSt, BBC-SRA Awards); Best Actor in a Short Film (Undertow, New York International Independent Film Festival), and Best Actor in a Feature Film (Starlight & Superfish, Michigan Blue Water Film Festival). The Diary of a Madman Starring: Matthew Jure Written By: Nikolay Gogol Edited By: Ross Burman Directed By: Jason Moore Visit Matthew’s website at www.matthewjure.net ...
