Gerard Logan brought his one man show ‘Night Terrors‘ to the Shed in January, just days before coronavirus arrived in Britain. He is widely acknowledged as an outstanding exponent of the solo performance, and has won acclaim and awards for his shows: The Rape of Lucrece and Wilde Without the Boy (Gareth Armstrong’s dramatisation of Oscar Wilde’s De Profundis).
He returns to the Shed on 7 November in Wildean mode to give us Wilde without the Boy and The Ballad of Reading Gaol. Until then, here he is on video, lighting up our lockdowns with Shakespeare’s early poem of dishonour and retribution in ancient Rome.
