A chance to munch on this show before its full Edinburgh Fringe run this summer. John Keats met a woman in Ireland, being carried in a kind of mobile kennel. The Romantic poet observed that she seemed to be suffering from a scarcity of biscuit. Her history and sensations are investigated, alongside those of Keats himself in limerick, sonnet, song and drawing of John Keats sword-fencing with celery. The feats of John Keats are accompanied by John Hegley’s own home-life, travels and attendance at the 4th form disco, in the oversize suit borrowed from his brother René Marcel.
Some mandolin playing, myths, moths, possibly French baroque dancing (for a few); devised for adults, but not unsuitable for the odd nine-year old. No biscuits.
