Fire And The Rose (George Innes)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

In the basement of a bar on Victoria Street, there is a cool dark room, two dimly lit spotlights, a black backdrop and George Innes. There is no music, the setting is modest, but Innes’ performance is mighty. It is not in the least light-hearted; arduous thought has gone into putting this piece together, with its big ideas about the human condition. Innes obviously feels connected to these pieces – it would be impossible to act with such majesty without having an understanding that runs deeper than your average performer might. This is one show that breaks away from the hard and fast entertainment so readily available at the Fringe. Raw and refreshing; I urge you to attend.

Laughing Horse at Espionage, 6 – 28 Aug, 3.45pm (4.45pm), free, fpp262.
