Fringe: Tom Neenan - a great storyteller
Theatres are filled with incredible people and fascinating stories - and that's just backstage.
Tom Neenan: Vaudeville
Underbelly Med Quad (Venue 302)
Theatres are filled with incredible people and fascinating stories - and that’s just backstage.
When the curtain falls and the audience leaves, then the darker side of life behind the scenes starts to emerge.
Storyteller Tom Neenan delves into a world of ‘magic, malevolence and misfortune’ in his one-man show.
The comedian and writer brings us some smashing tales with minimal props and pretty much nothing to call a set. The show hinges entirely on his storytelling skills,
He constructs each one extremely well and, in true theatrical tradition, saves the very best for last.
Death, jealousy, intrigue, a vengeful ventriloquist’s dummy … they’re all in there somewhere!
And the finale is something else too!
There are a number of one man shows and good storytellers at the Fringe this year, and Tom puts in a power of work to his hour long performance.
If you are in the area, this is worth catching.
