Here's a wee review of Lazzi's adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's Dead Souls
which appeared on Facebook written by Mike Daviot.
I received it on April Foole's Day, no joke. And to me it sings to the spirit of the day's celebration :
'DEAD SOULS... a wondrous one-man performance by Robert Williamson of the classic story by Gogol... if this had been performed in Italy, Germany or France it would rightly be acclaimed as deserving comparison with the work of Dario Fo, Brecht or the golden days of Jean-Louis Barrault at the Odeon in Paris. The passion, intelligence, quicksilver humour and Keaton-esque physicality of the performance are utterly un-British and make the almost an hour show feel like 15 minutes.'
So yes, we shall not be grave men, but shall rollover like a happy lottery and play Dead about...
Please contact myself or Robert about these future gigs... (as some of them may be 'outlaws' !)
Like Nikolai himself... we harness the scoundrel. 'Gee-up ! Drive fast over these bumpy roads !'
