The Good Scout5
Seen at the Edinburgh Fringe.
This gently disturbing play illuminates details of historic events in a thought-provoking gratifying way. Hard to believe that Hitler Youth visited Boy Scouts around the outbreak of the Second World War, but Baden-Powell himself sets it up. If we are to believe Will Parrish (Clement Charles) in his role as narrator. Glenn Chandler as set up another intriguing story based on these events. The cast relish the chance to play their main roles and to portray historical figures. The link to the Gang Show allows us accept their exaggerated versions of the real people with ease. Charles gives his character truth in his naivety matched by his friend Jacob (Charlie Mackay). Their reconciliation is the most touching point of the play. Clemente Lohr is chilling as leader of the Hitler Youth and Simon Stache is delightful as his companion. Amanda Bailey is touching as Will’s understanding mother and Lewis Allcock adds mystery as the spycatcher Dory. Lights, costume and design make this a high quality production.
