Toby Belch (is unwell)
A sly, subversive comedy monologue by John Knowles
starring Sidney Kean ('Berberian Sound Studio - The Donmar Warehouse, Girl from the North Country
Coronation Street, Eastenders, The Bill, Silent Witness, Poirot, Frost).
The life of one of Shakepeare's better known, but still, minor characters.
Toby Belch, is un-well, the years of louche living, late nights and debauchery have taken there toll and now he faces his end with the knowledge that he is seen as a buffoon, a sot and a bully. He could have been Hamlet, he could have been Macbeth... Is this his epitaph?

'An acting masterclass' Patrick Kealey - Paris Snow
''A virtuoso bit of writing with a complex array of themes''
''An imaginative amplification of Shakespeare's Toby Belch, with moods ranging from the sentimental and nostalgic to envious, funny and sharp''
Simone Witney - Hastings Independent.
'A top performance, mixing spit, sniggers & pathos in equal measure. Acutely accurate acting of an amazingly observed script. We loved it. Pls entertain us again soon.' Jenny Barrett Robertsbridge Arts Partnership
