The Attic (Andrew Floyd)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

Capturing the essence of one of Britain’s greatest poetic minds, Andrew Floyd creates a performance that is as moving as it is witty, as poetic as it is informative, and as powerful as it is amusing. Based on the real life events of Alan Jackson who isolated himself from the world after questioning the meaning of the poetry he had written, ‘The Attic’ outlines a rigorous period of self-enquiry. Brutal examination results in the confrontation of all manner of existential tribulations and self-discovery portrayed superbly by actor Andrew Floyd. Conveying the heart-wrenching struggle of inner turmoil through beautifully written language that covers a variety of narrative forms, the honesty of this production is the root of its brilliance.

Columcille Centre, 13 – 14 Aug, 2.30pm (3.45pm) and 6.00pm (7.15pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp239.
