Last year Edward was nominated for a UK Theatre Award for his role in the show that was described by the Guardian’s Lyn Gardner as ‘an exquisite piece of tomfoolery [that] offers a playful and moving exploration of life as an ongoing performance’.

The production returns as part of Told By An Idiot’s 21st birthday celebrations. A national tour (dates and venues to be announced) will follow the Young Vic season.

Petherbridge gives a layered performance that combines candour, wit, quizzical vagueness and a dry dignity. His understated yet heartfelt work is essential to the success of this playful and highly unusual piece. (Evening Standard)
