——————–
WHY CAN’T WE LIVE TOGETHER?
by Steve Waters (Bush, Donmar Warehouse)
Set against the low hum of the War on Terror, this is a kaleidoscopic vision of our times through the lives of one man and one woman.
Short, sharp and brilliantly observed, life flickers in front of us at break-neck speed.
“You’re asking me to be somebody I didn’t know I was going to be until you suddenly realised you wanted me to be that person.”
Check out the trailer for Why Can’t We Live Together? here
——————–
WHAT’S UP DOC?
Two short new pieces written in collaboration with ‘Thought Leaders’; experts in their field.
Somniloquy
by Craig Baxter (STAGE prize winner 2011);
Collaborator: Professor Richard Horner, University of Toronto.
Nyxie sleeps. As she sleeps, she talks…
“You’re really good at going to sleep, aren’t you?… Not like me. No, I’m rubbish…”
~
How To Begin
by Hisham Matar (Booker prize nominee);
Collaborator: Dr Devorah Baum, University of Southampton
We began and I told her.
“Again, I spoke and I told her. I was precise. Precise. I sat her down and was – precise.”
Check out the trailer for What’s Up Doc? here
