Video of David Benson’s solo show at the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh at the 2009 Fringe Festival. The show was commissioned by the British Library to mark the Tercentenary of the birth of Samuel Johnson (1709-84). It was later performed at the Gough Square house where Johnson wrote the Dictionary of the English Language, Rasselas, the Rambler essays and many other writings, some of which are quoted from in the show.
This is David’s very personal appreciation, not as an academic but as an actor with a deep love of Johnson’s philosophy and writing that continues to deepen with the years.
