Big Mouth Theatre Company’s Man and Superfan is debuting at Theatre N16 as part of the theatre’s first and exciting season. After sell out runs of their first play The Thin Line, Big Mouth are back with an exhilarating, thought-provoking play that holds up a magnifying glass to a moment we all know well... Five shots into the back of John Lennon’s head, but what about the man behind the gun? What about his life led him to this? Mark Chapman, a stone cold murder or a ‘superfan’ with a dream of getting too close?
Big Mouth Theatre Company questions the unquestioned, discusses the undiscussed and reveals the unrevealed. Formed on shared excitement and passion to tell the stories of the unheard, the work we create alters perspective, sparks debate and provides a chance for change. Whether new writing or old, classical or contemporary, we have one ultimate goal; stories of humans behind the headlines.
Theatre N16 is a trailblazing company founded by young people, for young people. It is London’s newest fringe venue, and is dedicated to creating a creative hub where new and existing works can be explored and pushed into new realms. Theatre N16 is proud of their commitment to the welfare of creatives, operating without a hire fee for external companies. This promoting and nurturing of talent means that Theatre N16 is a bastion for development within the context of a society in which the arts are increasingly struggling to stay afloat.
