Edmund. The Beginning

Date: 26 Apr 2018

Brian Lipson channels frank but inaccurate versions of literary greats and their families in Edmund. The Beginning.

In this heady combination of stand-up comedy, literary anecdote and performance art, Lipson summons a disordered array of characters – including William Shakespeare, Harold Pinter, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes – from the impatient past and the murky present.
