Tilda Swinton Answers An Ad On Craigslist (Tilda Co)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2018

There’s nothing cryptic about the title of this fabulously absurd show. Walt’s boyfriend is moving out, so he’s posted an ad on Craigslist looking for a new flatmate, and it’s Tilda Swinton (played by Tom Lenk, who you may know from ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’) who’s come to stay. Although, she’s actually there to observe Walt for an upcoming film role. Tilda is brilliantly aloof and mischievous: wonderfully daft one-liners abound, and the tales of her acting career (she’s been in everything, as everything, it transpires) are hilarious. A sort of fairy godmother/ghost of Christmas past character, she helps Walt to make sense of his life and stand up for himself. A gem of a show that’s downright hysterical, this must be seen to be believed.

Assembly George Square Theatre, until 26 Aug.
