Stan's Cafe presents The Anatomy of Melancholy.
Stan’s Cafe bring this extraordinary self-help manual to the stage.
The Anatomy of Melancholy has been described as “the greatest book ever written”. Nearly 400 years old, it is a vast (1500 page) attempt to identify the causes, symptoms and cures for all kinds of melancholy.
Written by vicar and librarian Robert Burton it contains all the wisdom of its age – arcane, outlandish and hilarious. Yet, amidst all the wild stories and suppositions, much of its advice remains as urgent and profound now as it did then.
The time has come for Stan’s Cafe to bring the world’s most extraordinary self-help manual to the stage.
