I wrote this show initially in February and March of 2015 and toured it through Australia and New Zealand for Eight weeks.

 

I am going to entirely rewrite it for the Edinburgh Festival 2015. Where i will perform it every day at 12.15pm (except Tuesdays)

 

 

Here is the blurb that i wrote before i knew what it was entirely about.

 

 

I have written a Play.*

 

It has a pretty epic scope, a relatively grand vision and somewhere in the region of twenty characters. It is, in short, a real humdinger.

 

Unfortunately though, it is a script so ambitious, so demanding, so exquisitely detailed that handing an actor this text and putting them in front of an audience is much like handing  a three year old child a pint of coffee and putting them in front of a zipwire.

 

It wont end well.

 

So I, ever vigilant, have pre-recorded each actor, in isolation, onto a separate tape, their fallibility erased with editing and their odious need for attention mitigated by the removal of the audience. Leaving a litany of individual voices – each one perfect and captured on a tape that when played back in precise unison will form a glorious theatrical polyphony.

 

The play is perfect.

 

The tapes are perfect.

 

I just need enough people to press play. That’s all.

 

 

*I directed it as well and I’ve got the main part too.
