"Damien Warren-Smith’s alter ego delivers a drama masterclass, leading us from clownish chaos to feats of comic genius"
"[An] uproariously funny hour...Undoubtedly one of the most fun shows at this year's festival"
"An anarchic play-date with a six-foot-two toddler with a mop of fuzzy hair, no inhibitions and far too much raspberry cordial on board. It’s an exhilarating feeling."
"An electrifying shot in the arm for comedy"
Theatre is dying, Garry is our only hope
Garry Starr Performs Everything is the story of a disgraced actor who attempts to save theatre from its inevitable extinction by performing every genre imaginable. Starr tears through artistic genres with little regard for personal safety and, arguably, less regard for art.
Disgraced actor Garry is going it alone. Following his recent dismissal from the Royal Shakespeare Company (was he ever really there?) he has decided that the performing arts are dying and he is just the man to save them. How will he do this? By performing every genre he can think of in the slightly misguided belief that this will somehow reignite people’s love for performing art and ultimately save theatre.
What ensues is both a satirisation and celebration of many well-known genres (as well a few lesser known) with a mixture of downright stupidity and surprising skill.
