On a bare stage on which two opposing rows of par cans rest, Olwen Fouere appears, simply dressed, ready to offer her interpretation of the voice of the river in James Joyce’s ‘Finnegan’s Wake’.
This is clearly an act of considerable bravery. Despite the depth of Fouere’s theatrical skills, this hour long piece would test the mettle of any actor almost to breaking point.
Fouere, of course, does not break, but bends her voice to the tenor and tone of Joyce’s writing.
