Gielgud - a Knight in the Theatre
A Knight in the Theatre sees Gielgud move from cricket-hating schoolboy to aging elder statesman, taking in the Old Vic, Alec Guinness, Edith Evans, Noel Coward, Laurence Olivier and Ralph Richardson. There's some bitchy reminiscing ("it was quite easy to have a difficult relationship with Larry"), but Telfer never overplays the campness, leaving us with a human portrait of a proud man. However, Gielgud lacks something of Burton's charisma and as a whole, the play feels a little slighter than its predecessor. It ends with a fiercely articulate man falling silent, his head slipping to his chest. It's a self-consciously dramatic moment, but it would be, wouldn't it? - Scotsman
scripted by George Telfer And Brian Pugh
Cafe Royal Fringe Theatre, Edinburgh 2004
