Rented Space Theatre Company presents the UK premiere of Merchant of Vembley by Shishir Kurup. A mordant and modern re-write of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice transported to the South Asian community of contemporary London.
In July 1995, alone in his cramped study, among thousands of showbusiness artefacts, film stock and memories the comic legend Bob Monkhouse realises his treasured joke books have been stolen. This is something of a disaster in the world of the obsessive performer and joke-smith. As the reality of the situation sinks in, he is forced into an uneasy introspection. The Man Called Monkhouse traces his life through a difficult childhood, via the vertiginous heights of television superstardom, the dent in his status during the ‘new wave’ comedy of the late ‘80s and finishes with a re-born Bob, back on TV and finally feted as the comic genius he undoubtedly was.
It is never easy to weigh up hopeful aspirations against practical pragmatism. The Day You’ll Love Me does not attempt to dispense any advice as to which should conquer over the other, but as Maria Luisa breaks down as Carlos Gardel sings, the words of Alfred, Lord Tennyson come to mind: “Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” This is a fiercely dense theatrical work with the right amount of light humour to restore equilibrium, and I warmly recommend it.
