Description

'You don’t know what to be, or not to be' – Shakespeare’s best-loved clown, Bottom, is reimagined in Fresh Life Theatre’s one-person show. When Bottom arrives at the theatre, ready to perform, and finds the rest of his cast have left him, he needs to improvise. Dealing with the trauma of pushing his friends away and needing the audience to like him is a cocktail for trouble. As his plan falls apart, he is forced to come to terms with who he is. Shakespeare’s Bottom, alone in the real world.

Truly an amazing show! I was laughing my a** off in the first half, and spend the second half crying my eyes out. The actor is truly talented and is gifted with the most amazing sense of comedy and timing. At first I thought “oh, he is just one of the guys who are really funny and that’s all.” But man was i surprised. The second half was more of an existential theme about “who am I, how do I fit in” and as I already said, it had me in tears for 30 minutes straight. I was so surprised finding out that he also masters the more sentimental and truthful acting skills. This guy is going somewhere, I’m sure of it!
