Rockertinkler (Sticky Back Theatre)

By | Published on Thursday 11 August 2011

‘Rockertinkler’ charts the progress of an average angry middle-class liberal from impotent frustration to near world domination, in a blisteringly funny comedy of slapstick, mishaps and innuendo. It’s part comedy and part socioeconomics which, whilst presented entertainingly, inevitably make you feel there’s a serious point being made. It’s an occasionally uneasy match, but for the most part, the show handles its material well. Some of the gags misfire, but the energy and audacity of the performance carry it through, and I guarantee that at the end, you’ll turn to your neighbour and giggle nervously for a long time, which is the best compliment I can pay it. Startling, funny and definitely original, ‘Rockertinkler’ is well worth your time.

Zoo Roxy, 5 – 29 Aug (not 17), 9.00pm (10.10pm), £8.00, fpp293.
