Claire Lovering emerged from WAAPA as the dux of her class in 2011, and made an immediate impact in four Black Swan productions. Then she vamoosed, to Sydney, as they do.
She’s back, with a little one-hander called River, and it’s a terrific, touching character piece that’s an early Fringe highlight.
Lovering’s writing (workshopped and dramaturged by Sarah Giles) is assured, balanced, observant and insightful. She controls its pace and temperature with great maturity, and brings it home with a sweet, beautiful performance. I can think of nothing to criticise.
There are going to be encore performances from February 10 – 12. Check the Fringe World website for details.
