Catherine Bohart: Immaculate (Chambers Touring)

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2018

In terms of things to talk about, Catherine Bohart has got the Holy Trinity – as the bisexual, OCD-having daughter of an Irish Catholic Deacon, she’s the ‘Father Ted’ character that never was. Devoting equal time to each one of these areas, she explores the crossover between them. This isn’t a sermon, however, more like a group therapy session, as she talks about her troubles and encourages us to share ours. It comes as no surprise when she mentions that her show has attracted several university professors – she is certainly an intriguing individual. Tightly written with some lovely turns of phrase, and performed in a friendly, chatty manner, this is a very enjoyable hour.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug.
