The world was cruel to Simeon Duff Mad and mired in the deepest slough Nobody seemed to give a stuff 'bout Simeon, Simeon Duff Simeon Duff is working class, unemployed and desperate. His wife works. He's lost all self-esteem. He's on the scrap heap and wants to end it all ...and so begins this brilliantly insane comedy about a man on the edge. When word gets out that Duff is going to top himself, a host of ne'er-do-wells crawl out of the woodwork, each wanting to claim his grand gesture for their 'noble cause'. Let's face it, why waste a death? But which cause shall it be ...love, politics, religion, or the rising price of fish? Will the disillusioned Duff go through with it? Will he really top himself for a dubious cause? Is he worth it? An adaptation of Nikolai Erdman's The Suicide (1928), The Grand Gesture is a witty satire of lobbyists seeking political control.
