The Moustache
  • The Moustache


    'What would you say if I shaved off my mustache?" asks The Moustache's hero of his wife. Once removed, his wife and friends not only fail to recognize him, but deny the existence of the former mustache altogether. A metaphysical nightmare of the grandest kind, The Moustache is a stunning blend of absurdist comedy and philosophical speculation.
