KNITTING IN HAMILTON

KnittingBrian Turner’s one act play Knitting was presented in the Hamilton Fringe in March. Directed by Lorna Ashton of Hamilton Playbox Theatre. Billed as ‘a grotesque one act play with a variety of interpretations. It has been described as ‘absurdist Grand Guignol’. The play will be going forward to TheatreFest.

The following is a comment from a viewer:

“Well. I’m not really sure what to say. After just coming from the Meteor after seeing ‘Knitting’ (A one act grotesque play about abuse of the simple & elderly) I’m absolutely floored by the emotion such a short piece evoked. While in the theatre I felt myself wanting to cry but because of the constant onslaught I was unable to. It wasn’t until I’d left the theatre and got in my car that I broke into tears.

“An issue so close to my heart, this piece had a huge impact. The performances by the three women were executed with a precise detail and absolute conviction. You guys are to be commended on such a brilliant, thought – provoking and very real show. I take my hat off to all those involved.”
