Top Ten Theatre Productions of 2012: #2 and #1
Andy Crowe’s semi-autobiographical piece of theatre for The Jack Burdell Experience’s COLLABORATIONS festival was built on a foundation of sincerity and honesty, and what grew from those foundations was a piece of theatre with such warmth and emotion that you couldn’t help but be moved. The playfulness of the text and inventive use of stage and props made for a magical performance that was over all too soon. No word yet if it will crop up again, but if it does you’ll find me planted front row, opening night.
If there was one piece of theatre that I raved about to anyone who would listen in 2012, it was The Life and Sort of Death of Eric Argyle. 15th Oak’s production, which wowed at the Edinburgh Fringe before further impressing audiences at home, was without doubt one of the most moving, ambitious, truly epic and enrapturing shows I have ever seen. In fact, there aren’t enough positive words in the English language that I can use to describe how enjoyable it is, you simply have to just sit and submit yourself to its wonderfulness. Luckily for those who missed it, you can catch it again this month in Smock Alley Theatre. And after a sell-out run at this year’s ABSOLUT Fringe, I’d suggest getting your tickets right now.
