Think no Evil of Us

"I thought it WAS Kenneth!" Dame Maggie Smith, 1996

David Benson's legendary solo show is back - and more brilliant than ever. Since Think No Evil of Us first stunned Edinburgh audiences in 1996 - picking up a Fringe First Award - it has toured nationally to great acclaim and now South West audiences have their first opportunity to savour the wit and sheer dramatic flair of this unforgettable performance. Benson builds a portrait of a highly complex man: vulnerable, insecure and capable of breathtaking cruelty. What fascinates him above all is Williams' ability "continually to redeem himself by turning his private torment into blistering comedy." Hailed by friends and colleagues of Kenneth's (including Barbara Windsor, Sheila Hancock, and Barry Took) as the most accurate portrayal of Kenneth Williams ever seen, Think No Evil of Us remains a testament to a much-missed entertainer and a masterpiece of modern theatre.
