Playing The Joker review

Playing The Joker is on tour and the Rugby League audiences are loving it!!

They have said something like: Clavane’s text is lively and varied – unpredictable even – but its strength lies mainly in the character of Eddie Waring as played by Dicken Ashworth with dignity and conviction, avoiding too close an attempt at impersonation. The opposing point of view is undermined by having as its proponent a manic young man clearly unhinged by the death of his father whom he feels was betrayed by Waring. William Fox’s energetic performance brings out the character’s instability rather unrelentingly. In contrast is David Kendra’s droll solidity as the hotel doorman.
