Theatre: The Year of Magical Wanking

Neil Watkins
Metcalfe Theatre
8 – 11 February, 2012
The Irish actor and playwright Neil Watkins’ Fringe Festival tour de force has subject matter I suspect would violently discombobulate the mature, worldly, open-minded folk who are packing the Spiegeltent for ostensibly risqué shows like Meow Meow and the Wau Waus.
So why is this a candidate for best show at this year’s enormous Perth Fringe? Because, simply, it’s a beautifully written, directed and performed work in the great tradition of Irish theatre and literature.
