Asher Treleaven: Matador

Fresh, exciting and energetic

There’s no explanation for the rose-trimmed, front-lawn stage Treleaven spends the hour dandying around, but this seems to fit in with his marvellously peculiar persona. His bittersweet harangue on racism is as intelligent and heartfelt as it is funny. Fresh, exciting and energetic.

  • 4 stars

Best Newcomer nominee 2010. The dapper Australian returns, his wit is as sharp as his outfit, to take on modern nationalists, fascist hairdos and racist sheep. 'Subtly intellectual, leaving the audience doubled over with laughter' (Observer).
