Ink – 4 Stars


London Fringe Festival

4 Stars

The whole point of a Fringe festival is the freedom to take risks.  And this show – which is about as Fringy as it gets – is the perfect example of a creative risk, and one which certainly works!


In ‘Ink’, directed by Fringe veteran Stéphanie Morin-Robert, actor Alastair Knowles delighted the audience with his journey…well, I don’t want to give anything away, because the actual plot of this show is open to wide interpretation.  But there was a journey, and Knowles committed fully to his character throughout.


The two most impressive things about ‘Ink’ were the passion and physicality of Knowles, and the fact that the audience was completely on board with…well, whatever was happening (again, I don’t want to give anything away).  Truly a commendable performance by an immensely talented artist.


As one audience member declaimed upon exiting the theatre: “I loved it!  That was nuts!  Anything could have happened!”   Truer words could not have been spoken.
