ED2019 5/5 Reviews ED2019 Theatre Reviews

Boar (Lewis Doherty, The North Wall and Nottingham Playhouse)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2019

Lewis Doherty continues his one-man dominance of the Fringe with a play that’s part ‘Game of Thrones’ and part ‘Holy Grail’. After the success of ‘Wolf’, Doherty proves he’s no one-hit-wonder, displaying creativity and talent by the bucket-load. Bringing to life numerous characters and settings seemingly all at once, it’s easy to forget that you’re just watching one man as you visualise characters talking to one another, ignoring the fact that this isn’t technically possible. Quick thinking and always ready to play off the audience, there seems to be nothing Doherty can’t do. I am already anticipating whatever follow up he brings next year, which is sure to be just as much of a hit.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
