Preview: Adler & Gibb
Tim Crouch and the Royal Court Theatre
ADLER & GIBB
A new touring production Written and directed by Tim Crouch
Co-Directed by Andy Smith and Karl James
SHOOT THE WOUNDED. SAVE YOURSELVES.
In preparation for the film role of a lifetime, an actor goes to extreme lengths to dig up the truth. Her subject is the celebrated artist, Janet Adler, who rejected the art world in favour of a private life.
Adler & Gibb tells the story of a raid – on a house, a life, an identity, a reality and a legacy.
From the real to unreal, from fake to true and from theatre to film, the play takes Tim Crouch’s (I, Malvolio, An Oak Tree) fascination with form and marries it to a compelling story of misappropriation and death.
This is a preview of the production before the company tour to Edinburgh
‘Hilarious, harrowing and maddening.’ ★★★★
