Linwood No More (White Stag Theatre)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

One room, one bench, one man, one life. Set at the dawn of the millennium, this one man play takes us on a journey through the life of someone who becomes homeless. From childhood camping trips to his first job, we see how his life changes at first for the better, but soon taking a different path. The beautiful performance brings endless emotion to the evocative script, as what is essentially one man sitting on a bench becomes so much more than that. As he speaks, we walk through his life with him: we’re there in the factories, by the hospital beds, we understand and relate to him. An incredibly relevant work, the piece gives a voice to the voiceless.

theSpace @ Jury’s Inn, until 23 Aug.
