KEN: ★★★★ FROM THE STAGE

Ken review at the Bunker, London – ‘a laugh-a-minute tribute’

DAVE HOLLANDER, THE TIMES

'Inspired, erratic and bewildering in equal measure, Ken Campbell was a mischievous master of experimental theatre who became notorious for his marathon productions. When Terry Johnson answered the phone to him in 1978, he embarked on an unexpected journey that kickstarted his career – and the relationship at the heart of this portrait of the theatremaker.'

'Stockwell’s uncanny portrayal of Campbell – a baggy-clothed bundle of inquisitiveness, nasal Essex voice and unpredictable gesticulations – gets to the heart of the man, yet never descends to caricature.'

'There’s a genuine, knicker-elastic-pinging glee in this kaleidoscopic two-hander, but deeper felt is Johnson’s clear debt of gratitude to “the most influential man I ever met”.'
