NEW DATES COMING SOON
by Jen McGregor
an intriguing and intelligent play, Hird's personable performance belies an undertone of creeping horror. The last few minutes will stick long in my memory.
I saw OLD BONES last year and loved it, so when it came back this year I had to see it again, and what do you know, it's even better than I remembered it.
The final scene is one of the best moments I have seen in solo theatre.
OLD BONES, by Jen McGregor, is the debut production of Third Pier Theatre. Originally playing to sold out crowds at the Prague Fringe, the show returned to the UK to an equally warm reception at the Buxton Fringe in both 2018 and 2019.
OLD BONES tells the story of James Napier; a gambler, drinker, adventurer, and lothario who, sick of living in the shadow of his adored and revered brother, calls upon infernal forces to do what no man has done before.
And 400 years later, he's still paying the price...
A story of love, loss, revenge, and forgiveness. This interactive one-man show has received glowing praise from critics and audiences alike.
