"You See, The Thing is This"
(Original Post: Classical Journey 10 July 2012)
|Veronica (Georgie Fenwick) can't take|
Walter (Sebastian Pope) seriously
Campbell's strange piece starts with the entrance of a very strange man - Walter Bardell, played by Sebastian himself. Walter is an irrepressibly childish character. He is fascinated by the toy trains, and various other objects in the room, including an iconic tennis-related poster from the seventies.
|The arrival of Harry|
|A fourth character - cub scout|
Four great actors, Four great characters. Phenomenal characterisation and irrepressible comedy. The 'select' audience of the tiny Hourglass theatre were treated to a condensed masterpiece. Chalk up another hit for 'Owlglass Theatre'.
