Caryl Churchill’s fast moving kaleidoscope of a play, where over one hundred characters try to work out what they know.
Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone shares a secret. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone’s never felt like this before.
A highly intelligent piece of theatre where from Churchill’s depiction of our fractured and fragmented age emerges a powerful and thought provoking ‘world view’. At a time where we have continual access to more and more information, where’s the humanity- where is the love? Seemingly inconsequential moments sit alongside those of life changing significance in this very funny and intensely touching play.
Graduating Northumbria University Performance students present the first ever North East staging of Caryl Churchill’s exhilarating new play.
"A thought-churning, deeply poignant new play... Leave it to Ms. Churchill to come up with a work that so ingeniously and exhaustively mirrors our age of the splintered attention span” New York Times
“The wit, invention and structural ingenuity of Churchill’s work are remarkable and, like the sexual tease in the Sondheim song, she never does anything twice.” The Telegraph
