We enjoyed Ed Reardon: A Writer’s Burden at the Fringe yesterday.
To quote the Introduction “As heard on Radio 4’s ‘Ed Reardon’s Week’, Christopher Douglas stars as Ed, the Bard of Berkhampstead… failed writer, fare dodger and master of the abusive email, grumbling about a modern world seemingly run by 12 year olds, while churning out books such as Jane Seymour’s Household Hints and Pet Peeves (to pay the bills) and trying to live off the royalties of his 1982 episode of Tenko (£17 per annum). Although he’d prefer to perform the show alone (pocketing the whole fee) he’s infuriatingly assisted by two actors playing all the other parts.”
There were certain similarities in the character of Ed Reardon to at least one of my friends.
The show was well performed, and kept us amused for the full hour, wondering what was going to come next.
