Claudia O’Doherty – The Telescope (3.5*)

This was great, quite different. A character comedy, a sort of surreal play about a comedian who wants to give up comedy and puts together an anti-comedy theatre piece for her last Fringe appearance. But the theatre piece falls apart and she has to make the best of it.

What I love about stuff like this is that the multi-level aspect of the ‘play within the play’ reveals a lot about the lead character and all her amusing neuroses. Its ok to say that, she’s not real 🙂

Afterwards, I was telling E that is she liked that she’d like one I saw last year which was a presentation about soil erosion. I found out later that it was the same girl that did the soil erosion one. Oh yeah, I’m good.
