Prunella Scales & Leo Aylen in
AN ASSORTMENT OF SIBYLS
Celebrated actress Prunella Scales joins poet Leo Aylen in a performance that examines the politics of the relationships between men and women. Like miniature plays, Leo Aylen’s poetry draws on the past to examine the politics of the present as the inimitable Prunella Scales takes on a range of roles from the murderous Medea, to a nameless hiker lying face down on a granite outcrop.
“The underlying connections forging the whole piece into one great organic entity are profound and muscular, the earth moves, stupendous” Simon Callow
Prunella Scales is adored by millions as Sybil Fawlty in the legendary BBC comedy Fawlty Towers, and was BAFTA-nominated for her appearance as Queen Elizabeth II in Alan Bennett’s A Question of Attribution.
Leo Aylen is a writer, poet, actor and television director who has worked on stage, screen and radio all over the world in a varied career. He originally studied Theatre at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and was Writer in Residence for a time at the Byam Shaw School of Art (then based at the University of Bath).
