PBH’s Free Fringe
Bunbury Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is the most beautifully descriptive show of the fringe. Fantastically performed, gently, powerful and at the same time poignant and completely enchanting, this show is not to be missed.
The show is perfectly written to suit the voice of the poet and the proof of this lies with the audience who are completely immersed in the world Fay Roberts has created.
The Selkie is a show that is impossible not to fall in love with.
The tale is told so vividly, the listener can almost see the colours and feel the textures of the narrative. This is a performance of many subtle layers which brings to life the stunning words written by this natural storyteller.
At times the story is woven is such a way that it’s almost hard to believe that it’s told in the same language in which you’re listening. I can guarantee you’ve never heard anything like this.
The passion behind the performance adds to the sheer escapism and the audience is very eager to hear more. Personally, I could listen to this for hours and still want more.
This is a tale of heartache, self discovery, identity and making your own way in a turbulent world. Full of twists and turns, the tale almost mimics the waters which form the essence of this piece.
Don’t miss this. You’ll regret it bitterly if you do because you will have missed out on something absolutely breathtaking, sublime and truly amazing.
