Me, Myself And Miss Gibbs (Francesca Millican-Slater)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

As the audience is taking their seats, Francesca is already on the stage, welcoming everyone individually to her show. This sets the tone, as she takes the audience through the story of how she attempted to track down the recipient of a 100 year old postcard found in a second hand shop bearing the cryptic message “Be careful tomorrow”. She’s very likeable, and at times this is less like a piece of theatre and more like going round to a friend’s house for a chat. Her story, punctuated by photos and videos of herself eight years ago, is fascinating, as she details her investigations of the mysterious Miss Gibbs. This is, all in all, a very enjoyable start to the afternoon.

Hill Street Theatre, 19 – 29 Aug, 12.15pm (1.15pm), £6.00 – £8.00, fpp280.
