Gethin Alderman Is: Sublime (Gethin Alderman)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2019

When the performer asks the audience in the preamble about what food allergies they have you might feel a bit uneasy. If so, you are in the right frame of mind for this unhinged, effervescent and entertaining show. Alderman plays a citrus fruit obsessive dealing with a relationship crisis, and employs crazed monologue, interpretive dance and touching song to tell his tale.  Beneath the absurdity is a warm-hearted and mischievous performer – most evident in his interactions with the audience. It’s a show which requires the audience to participate playfully and wholeheartedly; if they do so they will be rewarded with a classic ‘only at the Fringe’ experience which will amuse as well as drastically expanding their knowledge of citrus fruit.

Just The Tonic @ The Charteris Centre, until 25 Aug.
