Simpson works NF "Wally", who died aged 92, was hilarious, subversive, however, concealed a deeply philosophical mind
The comic playwright NF Simpson, who died at the advanced age of 92 years, was often compared to Eugène Ionesco. But I always thought he belonged to a tradition deeply English word spinning, twisting logically absurd. Simpson royal ancestors were of Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear and thugs. His heirs were Peter Cook, the band of Monty Python and the extras. But less obvious fantasy Simpson had a coherent vision. This was clearly expressed in his last work, if so, then yes, only last year. What it came down to live in a world ridiculous that neither religion nor reason can not provide an explanation. You do not buy it to find Simpson happily amused.
For years, Simpson seemed to disappear almost completely from view, but I regret to miss an episode he wrote for the series 70 of the Crown Court ITV called falling upward. However, triumphantly reappeared last year, at the age of 91. The setting was an octogenarian dictating his memoirs into a luxury retirement home. But it was the abundance led to interruptions. I especially liked the housewife obsessed animal who said they understood that the serpent in the Garden of Eden was actually a very long, thin sausage. And how can we forget that, according to Simpson, who was excellent teeth Sartre tipped the scales to win the Nobel Prize in 1964?
