British storyteller and comedian Daniel Kitson returns to St. Ann’s Warehouse with his latest solo piece. More…
From the show:
A new show about how much past the present can usefully contain. About rigor and generosity. About postcards and hair pins and a certificate from Harry Ramsdens in Blackpool. About how long it takes to stop noticing where you are. About the compromise of a full life and the burden of a full heart and how it’s impossible to know where looking back will lead. About the task of being who we are without denying who we’ve been. About the importance of regret and the possibility of hope and the delusional idea of starting again. About all the books I’ve never read and all the jam I’ve ever eaten and the bags of torn tickets and the drawers of empty pens and the inevitable sadness of ever holding on to anything. About, in short, the stuff in my house and the thoughts in my head.
See it if interested in watching a brilliant monologist do his thing however it is u describe it; comic, cerebral, quick thinking/talking; very funny
Don't see it if you don't like to laugh, don't appreciate the minutia & importance of one's life or 1 man shows; second half slows down, needs a trim
See it if You want a night of theater unlike any other you will probably ever see. Astoundingly original. Funny and smart.
Don't see it if You want a non stop laugh fest. I little biting at times, a little sad at others. Definitely slow at some points.
See it if you like Daniel Kitson and want to hear an intelligent monologue about the stuff in our life. But it does become repetitive and was too long
Don't see it if you don't like monologues and talent that abuses the audience by telling you the show is 2hrs long and is still going strong at 2.5hrs.
See it if Solo show from a British comedian whose premise is to read index cards listing items in his home. He is very good at telling stories while*
Don't see it if like traditional theater or traditional stand-up; don't like very long shows. It was over 2 hours (no intermission) when I saw it & really *
See it if you never miss a Daniel Kitson show and want to see what he's got cooked up this time.
Don't see it if you've never seen Kitson. This shouldn't be your first. It's rambling & tedious, but may still appeal to you. It's a one of a kind.
See it if you enjoy experimental theater craft, one-person performances, stand-up comedy.
Don't see it if you're uninterested in testing your patience to see where an experimental work is headed. He gets there. It's clever.
See it if You’re interested in a solo show that will (oddly enough) keep you on the edge of your seat in stitches laughing with some great twists!
Don't see it if You hate solo shows and like to receive exactly what you signed up for. Certainly not a traditional night of theatre.
See it if Daniel Kitson is engaging and when he just speaks to the audience is when it's at the most fun. See it if you like self-reflective humor
Don't see it if It's long-- probably at least 30 minutes longer than it needs to be. Don't see it if you're expecting a clear linear narrative.
