Misterman At The Lyttelton Theatre Reviewed
23 Apr 2012
Enda Walsh’ Misterman comes to The Lyttelton Theatre (part of the National Theatre). The play is running until 28th May 2012.
Maddy Costa from theguardian.co.uk reviewed Misterman at The Lyttelton Theatre. She gave it 4/5 stars.
The play is set in Inishfree in Ireland, and tells the story of evangelist Thomas Magill, the drunkard Dwain Flynn, Timmy O’Leary, his mother and the flirtatious Mrs Cleary.
Cillian Murphy (Thomas Magill) lives in a world of evil as he says "Sin has become our religion," he mourns. "Greed is our communion and evil is our good.”
A one man show, Murphy steals the show. Costa goes on to say “... a one-man show cacophonous with voices that give Thomas no peace. Some emerge from reel-to-reel tapes: this is consciously a conversation with Samuel Beckett. Some are meticulously voiced by Murphy. One, the angel Edel, is heard only by Thomas; when her voice finally breaks free, its youthful chime is a knife to the heart.”
