Strutting and Fretting: An Actor Despairs

Civic Theatre, Tuesday 12th February - Saturday 16th February 2019

On the last night of a spectacularly unsuccessful tour of Macbeth, the lead actor sits in his dressing room trying to work out where it all went wrong. Balancing his own disappointments with a fervent appreciation of Shakespeare's genius, he touches on such subjects as the death of Trotsky, the rise of Taylor Swift and where medieval witches did their shopping. Strutting and Fretting is an hilarious and thought-provoking new comedy from the wicked pen of Chris McHallem, who has written extensively for stage, TV, film and radio. He is also well known as an actor and has worked with the RSC, The Royal National Theatre, The Gate and The Abbey as well as numerous film and TV appearances including a popular stint on the BBC's Eastenders.
