Two fantastic things to happen this year included making it on to Radio 4’s Front Row programme to review the Everyman’s The Massive Tragedy of Madame Bovary! (which was so deliciously complex I nearly made this a top six); the other was becoming part of the fantastic My Theatre Mates, the online network set up by leading theatre critics Terri Paddock and Mark Shenton.
Cheerfully serious, uneven and ultimately triumphant, Told by An Idiot’s I Am Thomas, at Edinburgh’s Lyceum as part of its UK tour, is unpredictable, fascinating and occasionally infuriating.
