Recent winner of the Skinny Awards 'Fringe Genius Award for Most Original Production' at this years Edinburgh Fringe for his musically informative comedic jaunt Calypso Nights, Barnie Duncan is bringing his critically acclaimed and award winning solo show ...him back to Auckland for a limited return season. In a dusty corner of the Auckland CBD, enter the cramped isolated dwelling of Him, a recluse who lives obsessively through his only connection with the outside world - the daily newspaper. A startling, beautiful, and ultimately uplifting portrait of a complex man as the audience sits privy to rituals of solitude and hope, ...him won the Fringe Award at the 2013 Auckland Fringe Festival and has performed at the 2012 Melbourne Fringe Festival and the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival.
