Given the title of this performance I was expecting humour, a great character and possibly a little bit of singing, and Wicked Old Sod did not disappoint. I got everything I was expecting and wanted from the show, with a lot more besides.
Michelle Ridings starts off the performance by showing off her fabulous singing voice, and then gets straight into the narrative, talking about themes that range across all aspects of society. But there is more to Wicked Old Sod than just a monologue: there is audience participation – both with the performer and with other members of the audience; there’s a chance to grow and brew up some hones-tea; there’s humour sprinkled throughout, but there’s also some emotional moments in the second half.
So if you have a chance to, go watch ‘Wicked Old Sod Resurrection’ at St Anne’s, and find out for yourself just how good it is.
