Fringe: Almost Face To Face

19 September 2014 | 2:28 pm | Harry Hughes

The Dublin that Stephen House visits in his latest work is a scary place. In this fantastic one-man show, he recaps his journey through the seedy underbelly of the Irish capital, running with prostitutes, drunks and drug dealers, and battling personal demons.

You really feel for this character, who, though in a rough crowd, has a strong heart, and does his best to make the lonely people around him a little bit happier.

House is an amazing storyteller who’s able to create complicated worlds with multiple characters using only his voice, and struggles through extremes of elation and depression before our eyes. Not to be missed.

La Mama Theatre, Melbourne Fringe Festival, to 28 Sep
