Analog.Ue at National Theatre: Lyttelton

From to


Daniel Kitson tells a strange tale using vintage tape recorders.

Fringe comedy star Daniel Kitson brings his latest show, Analog.Ue, to the National Theatre. Based on a mess of cables, a mound of electronic junk and a single cassette player, Kitson takes this outdated audio and visual equipment and turns it into a show about a pre-recorded story.

Arranging and setting up the equipment in the theatre space, Kitson is in control of numerous cassette players. Getting each of them to play in turn, the cassettes contain sections of a narrative (read by Kitson) about an elderly man in a garage in the 1970s. Trapped in there by his wife, the man has one day to read his whole life story into a microphone.

From the gloomy to the very funny, this highly original show demonstrates exactly why Kitson is a set apart from his comedy peers.
