The Last Cuckoo is an intimate, heartwarming ‘one man show’ is about nature, the countryside, birds and inter-generational relationships. The central character, Harry Baskerville, an ornithologist, is not only a geniune British eccentric but also irascible and unpredictable. Following Harry’s funeral, his nephew, Duncan Campbell, begins the slow, sad and arduous task of working through his uncle’s effects – still all left untouched – at his remote English coastal cottage. The process brings with it heartfelt reflections on a slow paced style of life, harmoniously in tune with the beauty of nature – a way of existence which, Duncan feels, is all too fast disappearing.
Eloquently written by Nigel Forde and sensitively and beautifully performed by Andrew Harrison this is a show not to be missed.
