Ergo Phizmiz Crowdfunds Operatic Version Of The Third Policeman

Ergo Phizmiz is attempting to crowdfund a production of Flann O’Brien’s The Third Policeman after having funding applications rejected. Phizmiz calls The Third Policeman a ‘neuropera’ - which he says stands for a “new experimental underground radical opera, and also stands for noisy eccentric uber-ropey opera, nasty exceptional uppity rabid opera, and naughty elegant umpty dumpty raging opera. That’s to say that it’s a home made opera produced and performed by thieves and vagabonds like myself.”
