The London Vertigo

The London Vertigo by Brian Friel   14 April 1994

Performed at the Letchworth Little Theatre 32nd Drama Festival 13-16 April 1994

Also Performed at the Welwyn Drama Festival 11 June 1994 and the Luton Drama Festival.

The London Vertigo tells the story of Mrs O’Dogherty who is forced to reform her behaviour by dropping her newly acquired anglophile habits and language use to transform into ‘The Irish Fine Lady’. Her concomitant giving up of colonial mimicry and changing back to ‘decent Dublin domesticity’ unwittingly rewrites the original author’s own biography as comedy and farce.
