By Peter Maddern

Written and performed by Nicholas Collett, this is a superb show about 80 year old former WWII spitfire pilot, Peter Walker. Walker is getting old but his memories are razor sharp and his desire to control his world undiminished. When his grand-daughter unexpectedly arrives, he is given the opportunity to bring together some last unknitted threads in his life.

This is the sort of Fringe theatre that, in days of yore, packed them in and its merit is not diminished this year by the fact that it has been here before. Under Gavin Robertson’s direction, Collett does a great job leaping from the then to now, from male to female, from pilot to PI. It’s a wonderful exhibition of acting craftsmanship and of fine writing for a solo performer.
