Adler + Gibb
Tim Crouch's four-star show comes to the Unicorn Theatre
First staged at the Royal Court in 2014, this new touring production of Adler And Gibb comes to the Unicorn Theatre direct from the Edinburgh Fringe. In preparation for a film role, an actress seizes the opportunity to dig up the truth in search of authenticity. Her subject is Janet Adler, a celebrated artist who rejected the art world in favour of making work solely for her lover Margaret Gibb. Adler and Gibb tells the story of a raid: on a house, a life, an identity, a reality and a legacy. From the real to unreal, from fake to true and from theatre to film, the play takes Tim Crouch’s fascination, seen openly in "I, Malvolio", "An Oak Tree", "Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore", with form and marries it to a compelling story of misappropriation. Under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
"Hilarious, harrowing and maddening interrogation of the value of art."
