A monologue by Simon Stephens. Originally written to be performed by Andrew Scott. A very short piece of theatre but extremely powerful. The piece grew from a specific commission – 30 minutes in natural light – and was written over three weeks. It takes bareness to the point of a white canvas by Rauschenberg. There seems to be nothing there, yet in the movement beneath the surface, in its metaphorical compression, it asks the biggest questions of all about the nature of life, the existence of God.
This performance will be included within a double bill of the monologue and original music created for the piece by Sarah Homer.
Dates to be announced very soon for a December showing in the Dairy.
