Canadian Bartender at Butlins (3 stars)

Entertaining storytelling

comments

This article is from 2007.

If the basic purpose of theatre is to tell a story (and an entertaining one at that), then TJ Dawe has it covered. Recounting the experiences of a summer working at a holiday camp, this monologue has the feel of a fireside ghost story, interspersed with philosophical musings, anecdotes, and a transatlantic perspective on British life, language and custom. It might simply be a likeable foreigner telling a story, but it’s a good one, and he tells it well. (David Laing)
