Robin (A One-Man Comedy) (Getting Into Grips)

By | Published on Monday 5 August 2013

‘Robin’ is a show that seems likely to be given either 1/5 or 5/5. It’s just that kind of experience. I’m going to go with 5/5. It’s a surprising, funny, and incredibly unusual piece of maverick comic theatre that places incredible strain on its sole performer, Adam Drake, while also demanding a lot of its audience. It is a daring and ambitious journey through the mind of its titular protagonist, and Drake’s performance, playing two or three characters at once, makes it work. While ‘Robin’ may not be to everyone’s tastes, I urge you to persevere; it may be one of the most indescribably wonderful pieces of theatre I’ve seen.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 4.00pm.
