What's on/Brighton Fringe 2022/A Substitute For Life

‘Books are good enough in their own way, but they are a mighty bloodless substitute for real life’.
Robert Louis Stevenson’s words resonate for Francis Kenworthy, played by Tim Hardy in Simon Brett’s riveting one-man play.

 

Francis has always used books to hide from reality and help him forget the brutalities of his Victorian upbringing, but a family accident forces him to face real life. The seeds of tragedy have been sown long ago; a violent outcome is inevitable.

Hardy’s one man 'The Trials of Galileo' by Nic Young, which received five star reviews in Edinburgh Fringe, is also performing at Rotunda Squeak - Brighton Fringe 2022.
