Jubilate! by Rosalind Adler - One4Review
There is no doubt that Rosalind Adler is an excellent character actress and this play gives her plenty of scope to showcase these skills as she portrays five women whose life interlink with each other.
Anna, the vicar’s wife is a know it all and acts somewhat as a puppet master, in some ways controlling, Cheryl, Deborah, Pat and Lucy, certainly usually feeling she has all the answers, but does she?
With the simple addition of a different piece of clothing and a slight change or hairstyle the story is told by these five creations, and a story perhaps one would not expect.
The play is nicely written and staged somewhat in a minimalist style, but it is Ms Adler’s excellent characterisation that is really the selling point for me. Surely this is a excellent way to start a Fringe day.
