A Tribute – Gielgud’s Ages of Man

Billed at two hours, George Innes rushes to complete his tribute to Gielgud on time, losing several impatient people halfway through. It’s a shame; while his Romeo lacks youthful vigour, Innes is an imperious Prospero, and reads Gielgud’s letters with infectious admiration. Good, but a poor fit for the Free Fringe.

Half a century later, Innes returnsto the Fringe with a new production from off-Broadway following Gielgud's chosen path. Journey from youthful Romeoto ancient Lear in delicately interwoven Shakespearean sonnets and speeches.
