Adler & Gibb
Tim Crouch / Royal Court Theatre
Contains strong language
In preparation for the film role of a lifetime, an actor goes to extreme lengths to dig up the truth. Her subject is the celebrated artist, Janet Adler, who rejected the art world in favour of a private life. A re-staging of Tim Crouch’s notorious Royal Court play, this is the story of a raid – on a house, a life and a legacy. From the real to the unreal, fake to true and theatre to film, the play marries Tim Crouch’s fascination with form to a compelling story of misappropriation and death.
Written and directed by Tim Crouch.
Co-directed by Andy Smith and Karl James.
