REVIEW: The Final adventure of Frankie Fightwell at the Putney Arts Theatre

Is it a stage play? Is it a radio play? Is it a book? Is it a podcast? Well here in the Putney Arts Theatre as part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe, Blackshaw Theatre present a unique experience as Chris Buxey's new work feels like all of them at the same time! It was a real treat to be part of the recording of the podcast , presented on stage as radio play recording about an author writing a book! Much of the enjoyment comes from watching the five foley artists creating the sound track to the story telling.

Stuart is an author who is now approaching sixty and lives in a one bedroom flat despite 14 years of success writing the 7 previous adventures of Frankie Fightwell as she battles the whispering moons, the vampire sharks, the silent station and other curious adversaries. However since the fifth edition sales are falling and his agent Dominic is concerned and suggests he needs to kill off Frankie to boost sales. His problem is that he can hardly distinguish between the characters in the books and the real people around him. Frankie was intended to inspire his wayward daughter Rachel and his writing process involves talking to Frankie in his head and he has not seen Rachel for three years.
