But, How Long Can it Take a Man to Brew a Cup of Tea?

A tragicomic notion of the modern man’s impossible need for control in a chaotic world 

Etienne Manceau is such an equilibrian actor and artist, that he must have spent well over the mandatory 10.000 hours practicing to do what he can.

In this play, seemingly ordinary and harmless objects become complicated tools that turns out to be impossible aids for brewing a good cup of tea. So immensely difficult can we meet the most simple things in life.

A thought-provoking but howlingly funny performance about everything’s meaning, everyday OCD and small obsessions.

It’s a must-see.

Full of joy and laughter. My life felt better afterwards - an effect only great theatre can have on you.
