 Toby Belch (is unwell) 

'An acting masterclass' Patrick Kealey

Theatre Nation


 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?
