JAck London's The Star Rover
Directed by David Green - Thursday 6th - Saturday 22nd August 2015 - 9:25pm - Spotlites @ The Merchants Hall
On the eve of his hanging, a death-row convict sits alone with his memories. Despite years of relentless straitjacket torture, he remains defiant, spurred by wild visions of past lives and the certainty that after it all, something new awaits.

★★★★★ THE EDFRINGE REVIEW
"THIS IS REALLY A PERFORMANCE NOT TO BE MISSED. UTTERLY INCOMPARABLE TO ALL I HAVE SEEN BEFORE, THIS PERFORMANCE IS ONE OF EMOTIONAL INTENSITY, AND AT MOMENTS COULD CERTAINLY BE DESCRIBED AS NOTHING LESS THAN FIRST-RATE ART."
★★★★ THE EDFRINGE REVIEW
"STAR ROVER IS POWERFUL, DARK AND NECESSARY, AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TAKE YOURSELF AWAY FROM COMEDY FOR JUST THIS HOUR FROM WHICH YOU EMERGE FEELING SOBER AND UNDERSTANDING."
