The Man Who

March 10 – April 9, 1995

Production Language English
Country of Origin France
Description A middle-aged man claims he is a young Parisian while another insists that his left arm belongs to his mother. Scrambled perceptions and missed connections collide on an inspired tour of the mind. Peter Brook returns to BAM with The Man Who, his ambitious staging of Oliver Sacks' best-selling casebook, The Man Who Mistook HIs Wife for a Hat. A schockingly spare and intimate exploration of the vastness of the human brain, The Man Who is a revelation of "the weird outskirts of consciousness" The New Yorker.
