John Hegley's Biscuit of Destiny

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2022

Starring: John Hegley

John Hegley's Biscuit of Destiny. John Keats met a woman in Ireland, being carried in a kind of mobile kennel. The romantic poet observed that she seemed to be suffering from a scarcity of biscuit. The feats of John Keats are accompanied by Hegley's own home-life, travels and attendance at the fourth-form disco, in the oversized suit borrowed from his brother René Marcel. Some mandolin playing, myths, moths, possibly French baroque dancing (for a few); devised for adults, but not unsuitable for the odd nine-year-old. No biscuits. 'Awesomely mundane' (Independent).
