Are There More Of You? (Hint Of Lime Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

Amidst the many dubious shows at the Festival it’s easy to lose faith; Alison Skilbeck’s one-woman show will have it restored in a jiffy, as she plots the lives, loves and loneliness of four very different women. Skilbeck moves fluidly between personalities, accents, social class, and attitudes as simply as changing her shoes; both costume and stage design are minimal, which allows her tremendous skill in acting to do all the work in bringing these characters to life. There are subtle links between characters, which are chattily confided to the audience; it is over a book sale or a business dinner that we get these intimate and moving vignettes, with Skilbeck ultimately leaving you spellbound by her powers of characterisation.

C aquila, 4 – 29 Aug (not 15), 5.25pm (6.35pm), £7.50 – £10.50, fpp239.
