Written and Directed by GERDA STEVENSON
With DAVE ANDERSON and GERDA STEVENSON
'BURSTING AT THE SEAMS - A SMALL DRAMA ABOUT A LARGE SUBJECT!'
The New York Times
'REMARKABLE AND UNIVERSALLY RESONANT - IT SPEAKS TO ALL OF US ABOUT LOSS, DENIAL, BLAME, AND ESCAPE.'
Backstage, CRITIC'S PICK
'A SIMMERING ONE-ACT!'
New York Post
'ENTERTAINING, SIGNIFICANT AND COMMENDABLY COMPACT!'
First produced by A Play, A Pie and A Pint at Oran Mor, Glasgow, and now from Assembly on the Edinburgh Fringe - comedy and tragedy collide in
Federer versus Murray, a powerful
new play about bereavement and
war on three levels: the private war
between a couple in a long-term
marriage, the public war of rivalry
within sport, and political war
A beautiful study
of human strength and fragility
told through the lives of two very
ordinary people, this moving and
genuinely funny play unfolds as
the (Switzerland versus Scotland)
Wimbledon Tennis Semi-Final plays
out on television. Federer versus
Murray was described by one
approving Edinburgh critic last year
as 'a Virginia Woolf for the Scottish
working class' and Michael
Coveney in The Independent
praised the two great performers
for their 'stealth and restraint'.
Federer versus Murray features live music performed by saxophonist Ben Bryden - a 'Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year 2010' finalist, and winner of the Edinburgh Jazz Festival Jam Competition.
FEDERER VERSUS MURRAY is presented as part of Scotland Week 2012.
