The cast is led by Liam Wakeford as The Man, proving that he not only acts superbly but is a dab hand at gutting fish – yes, a real one, in case you were wondering. I sat in the front row and could see every last gory detail. Apart from that particular skill, he has that mesmerising quality that forces his audience to watch him intently, and he uses his entire body to display his emotions, to great effect.
