NotMoses at the Arts Theatre

Arts Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

NotMoses receives its world premiere at the Arts Theatre.

Don’t miss the comic new play, NotMoses – a wildly irreverent new comedy from award-winning filmmaker Gary Sinyor.

NotMoses plays a strictly limited run from 10 March 2016 until 9 April at the Arts Theatre.

STORY

Set in Ancient Egypt, NotMoses is the story of a crying baby who is plucked from his basket by a Princess only to be dumped back in the Nile when she sees a nicer baby, Moses. NotMoses grows up a disgruntled slave whilst Prince Moses studies accountancy at Pharaoh’s court. When both men are forced to flee into the Sinai desert, they make kebabs on the burning bush before the Good Lord himself orders them to lead the Jews out of bondage and into a land full of cows and bees. Eventually, it’s the alluring Miriam – a woman! – who leads the Exodus.

NotMoses is an important work that answers the question that has troubled mankind throughout the ages: Does oral sex constitute adultery? Destined to end up in a drawer in every hotel room in the world, there’s only one play in town where you can experience the wonder of the ten plagues (even if they are mainly offstage).

CAST

The cast includes Antonia Davies as Aviva, Dana Haqjoo as Pharaoh, Greg Barnett as NotMoses, Jasmine Hyde as the Princess, Joe Morrow as Feripoti, Thomas Nelstrop as Moses, Niv Petel as Rameses and Leon Stewart plays the Rabbi.  Thirteen year old Izzy Lee and twelve year old Theo Mackenzie will alternate performing the voice of the Son of God.

CREATIVE TEAM

NotMoses is written and directed by Gary Sinyor with design by Carla Goodman and lighting by Humphrey McDermott.

1 thought on “NotMoses at the Arts Theatre”

  1. Utterly unfunny. Best avoided. I’ve never seen so many theatregoers leave in the interval! I felt sorry for the cast, they did their best but there’s no saving this show.
