Witzelsucht And Moria theatre review


THEATRE
Witzelsucht And Moria 2 stars
Zoo Roxy (Venue 115)
There's a rich erudition behind the writing in GC Morgan's one-man show. There's an assurance and panache in his performance too. What's harder to fathom is the purpose of this study of a retired psychiatrist who is only marginally less psychotic than his clients.
Despite a couple of arresting moments – one in which black bile bubbles from his mouth; the other in which he gives a description of physically possessing his own alter ego – the play sits uneasily between stand-up character comedy and something more theatrical.
