Dumbstruck in the West Country

Dumbstruck 3 (photo by Owain Shaw)

Dear friends around Bristol and Frome, Fine Chisel’s Dumbstruck is sailing your way!

Through next week, 17th-21st June, we’ll be at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatres. And then we’re at The Merlin in Frome on 26th June. Very much looking forward to bringing our tale of a whale back home and sharing it with some familiar faces…and ears. Do hope you can bring them.

And whilst we’ve been tacking back and fore, up and down the country, ferrying West to Cork, belting out a shanty or several along the way somewhere, out there, in our very oceans, a gentle giant with an utterly unique falsetto takes yet another solo.

Fiona is losing her voice. Mal is losing his faith. Ted is losing his mind.

Somewhere in the North Pacific a lonely whale sings.

After garnering a Fringe First and an MTN Award for Innovation at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, Fine Chisel’s Dumbstruck is about to set sail. We’ll be opening at The Bike Shed in Exeter on Monday 26th May. After that it’s on to The Marlowe, Canterbury and then The Point, Eastleigh. For full tour schedule take a look here.

And if you’re in and around Exeter the week beforehand we’ll be doing a bit of rep with two of our previous shows Firing Blanks and Midnight at The Boar’s Head.

Keep up to date with our journey inspired by the true mystery of the 52 hertz whale via my twitter @georgewiIIiams and the company’s @finechisel.

The impressively chameleon-like George Williams appears as three different open-mic performers – professional Welshman Dai, flamboyant moustachioed drag queen Sue, and protest camp leader Dennis.

The Scotsman on Unplugged

.

Falstaff (Williams) was a particular treat, full of his own nonsense with a pleasing voice to boot. His was a standout talent.

Broadway Baby on Midnight at The Boar’s Head

.

George Williams is hilariously Chaplinesque.

Leonie Taylor on Lost Props

.

And speaking of the music, it’s what lifts this production to achieve the fourth star; I would happily go to see any one of the musicians in their own concert, but the character Lucas (George Williams) is a particular standout, in both personality and musical ability.

Fringe Guru on 4.3 Miles From Nowhere

.

George Williams was a particular highlight, creating a gallery of comic grotesques.

Broadway Baby on Get Carter

.

Williams and Hogg are musically gifted on the guitar and violin and keep the audience entertained both on stage and in between acts with impromptu songs and spontaneous performances.

What’s On Stage on Birdy

.

Thankfully after the interval, there are some star turns with surreal moments. A giant bunny appears alongside a dewy eyed Art Garfunkel. Also worth waiting for, a pitch perfect David Bowie appears. Ziggy Stardust would be pleased with this particular offering.

BBC Southern Counties on Gary Oakey’s Pop Time Machine

.

Sleepless Nights is a wonderfully written love story acted with natural sincerity by George Williams and Jolene Tattersall. I was genuinely moved. Mr Williams is totally believable both in this role and as Brian in Warm up. You forget that he’s acting.

Fine Chisel

Original, dynamic, rousing theatre and live music.

.

Long Nose Puppets

Inspiring, inventive and colourful puppet shows for the very young.

.

Wildheart & Lyric

Playful, fantastical theatre.

.

George Williams turned Mozart into a man who deserved our sympathy. His final moments, with the Requiem completed, were heartbreaking. We all felt enormous pity. I don’t cry at the theatre, but…
