Mark Thomas: Bravo Figaro
Radio edit of the critically acclaimed stand-up comedy show by Mark Thomas
Bravo Figaro is a poignant and personal tale about Mark Thomas's relationship with his father, which plunders the operatic themes of family, love, death and art.
Thomas's father is a self-employed builder with a passion for Verdi, Rossini, Puccini and Mozart. But when he is diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy, his life begins to crumble. As his father's illness progresses, Thomas stages a concert to try to connect with him through music.
