Description

In the house on the corner of our street lived an old man. I didn't know his name. He didn't know mine. The day before he died he left a cardboard box, containing his most treasured possessions, on my doorstep. Books, CDs, cassettes and videotapes I'd never heard of. I wanted to learn more. I couldn't. They were untraceable. The stuff didn't seem to exist... A show about half-truths and white lies, identity, medication and the things you leave behind. 'Noir-like quality. In talking about art, they prove it's worth making it' (Scotsman).

Tim Honnef opens his show, The Things I Never Told You, by explaining that he has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe several times before, occasionally under the moniker Jonas Muller, and that he has often resorted to deceiving his audience. Not this time. This year, Honnef swears to tell us...

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 53 days ago

Last year, Dutch writer-performer Tim Honnef (or Jonas Muller - we think they’re the same person) was forced to cancel his Fringe show after a few days due to illness. ...

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 54 days ago

This relentless game-playing is either thrillingly postmodern or deeply frustrating. However, the idea of a cache of books, albums and videos none of which seem ever to have existed takes a Borgesian grip on the imagination. As twist follows twist, one has to admit that even if it’s all a shaggy dog story, it’s a damn fine one.

British Theatre Guide (4/5 stars) 64 days ago

Tim Honnef has graced the Fringe stages more than once, at times in the guise of his alter-ego Jonas Müller and at others as himself, or a version of himself perhaps. In each case, the staging is simple, consisting of a sparse clutter of objects and the man himself. In...
