The Anatomy Of Melancholy: Stan's Cafe
Written four hundred years ago by librarian and vicar Robert Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy has been described as 'the greatest book ever written'. Its 1500 pages are full of cutting edge science, maids vomiting pebbles, priests defecating in ditches, lovers unrequited, friends who can't be parted, plus enormous expansive long lists of every food, herb, location, activity or occupation that can bring on or cure melancholy in any one of its many forms.
In their stage version, Stan's Cafe transform this extraordinary book into a guided tour of melancholy and the mind of its author; in so doing they consider how this 17th century self-help manual reflects our own concerns and obsessions.
Suitable for ages 12+ years.
'Stan's Cafe has a genius way of explaining things and making the difficult simple' (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian).
Stan's Cafe (pronounced 'Caff') is a Birmingham-based theatre and performance
company who have sited their shows in bizarre and provocative places: churches, lorries, swimming pools...
The group comprises artists from a variety of disciplines, though primarily theatre
practitioners, working under the artistic direction of James Yarker.
