CABARET FRINGE FESTIVAL REVIEW: REVELATIONS OF AN ANGRY BEAST

In a blend of theatrical storytelling, soulful song and spoken word poetry, Tess Fowler debuted Revelations Of An Angry Beast for the first time at The Bakehouse Theatre on Wednesday, 21 June.

Revelations Of An Angry Beast sees Tess Fowler reflect on her global journey searching for self-acceptance. Exploring with searing honesty the light and dark of being a woman in her mid 20’s.

Fowler dives deep into her past relationships and gives an immensely personal insight into her travels and love life. Fowler’s performance and recount of these stories from her past transformed the room into sympathy as she evoked emotional and poignant scenes during intense moments of history.

Ultimately, Revelations Of An Angry Beast is a rendition of a story that has been building for many years and it almost seemed to be a therapeutic process for Tess Fowler to give it all to the stage.

Filled with something for everyone, the spoken word poetry helped the free flowing narrative move forward and provide moments of solace and humour, while musical accompaniment from musicians Logan Watt (piano) and Frank Giles (Violin) helped peak the storytelling and emotion.

Revelations Of An Angry Beast provides a deep, relatable and entertaining emotional insight into the memoirs of Tess Fowler.
