The groundbreaking theatrical all-rounder Tim Crouch is to stage his newest production, Adler and Gibb, at The Lowry across a five-day run in September. Having also shown flair in acting, Crouch wrote and directed this acclaimed 2014 production, whose Royal Court debut saw comparisons with Tarantino and Kerouac – and prompted the Independent to call it ‘a memorable and rewarding show’. It follows the actress Margaret Gibb’s (Gina Moxley) journey – bordering obsession – to uncover as much about the life of a celebrated artist, Janet Adler, as she can to be able to accurate play her character in a fictional film. The time since its original staging has allowed Crouch to develop the play’s setting, promising to simplify the staging in order to amplify the story telling, meaning now is the best opportunity to catch it.
