Description

Want to know why they call me 5 Fingers? An absurdist play exploring a petty thief's self journey. Forced to reflect from a court ordered psychiatrist's office, 5 Fingers revisits formative past events and dreams of escaping a life of crime only to write poetry and dance the night away in drag and debauchery. Based on Jean Genet. LGBTQIA+ themes. PBH's Free Fringe.

What theatre of the absurd is meant to be. Camus' 'The Rebel' meets McCabe's 'The Butcher Boy' with the distinct imprint of their own personality and sexuality making it a truly entertaining experience. A brilliant writer, actor and a joy to watch. My personal favourite of the fringe.

Such immense talent on a tiny stage. The beginning of an amazing journey for someone so talented. 50 mins of encapsulating entertainment. Characters delivered with brilliance, changing seamlessly before my eyes. Superb acting, incredible delivery, beautifully written. Totally suspended my disbelief, brought me into a different world. Educated, made me really feel and was deeply thought-provoking. I would travel a long way to see another such amazing performance. Could not recommend more. Best show of the Fringe 2022.

I cannot believe we happened upon Five Fingers today. It was pure chance. This performance is what the fringe is all about. Such amazing talent, a truly gifted writer and unbelievable performer. Matthew brought me right into the world of his characters and executed his style of absurdism to a such a high level it was a privilege to see in such an intimate setting. Thank you for letting us into your world. Thoroughly recommend!
