Morning Glory – Jason Sutton
Intimate and homely, Jason Sutton’s mild-mannered creation is a far cry from his usual stage ego, drag-diva Miss Jason. We were drawn in by his skilful delivery – quiet, confiding, almost confessional. Anger, regret and envy are all carefully suppressed. Andrew Kay’s polished script deftly avoided the most obvious clichés and Allan Cardew’s assured direction gave significance to details like the fall of a towel, the zipping of a fly. Of course, the enthusiastic audience, that’s men over a certain age and theatre-savvy women, loved every moment. However, this witty middle-life monologue has much to offer and inform younger audiences too.
