Toby Belch (is unwell)
A dark comedy monologue by John Knowles
starring Sidney Kean ('Berberian Sound Studio - The Donmar Warehouse, 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
