Harriet Gandy Horsepower



On the edge of a breakdown, Wilbert decides to confront the not-so-well-kept secret of his shadow self: Destructive Desmond, a provocative cabaret artist. This darkly absurd tale encapsulates the emergence of the authentic self and questions what is real and what is simply a performance? Inspired by the character in WH Auden’s The Dog Beneath the Skin. This one-person show is edgy in nature, blessed with fervent choreography, excavating layers of raw emotional intelligence throughout.

This show was part of our Edinburgh Fringe 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
