CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Apologies to the Bengali Lady
3 Tue, 13th Aug 19
Seen at the Edinburgh Fringe
A young Bengali woman struggles with her national history at the hands of the English while trying to write a book about Shakespeare in India. But Will is in her head and on stage with her. There's a mix of passion and didactic in the script which sometimes comes across as a lecture. She is convincing as she returns to play one of her forebears . It is very brave to attempt a Scottish accent in Edinburgh, but he is an effective foil for her. It does make me think about many issues raised.
