BEYOND THE EDGE OF SCIENCE LIES MAGIC.
IMAGINE IF WE COULD SEE IT...
Beyond the edge of science lies magic. Imagine if we could see it? If we could stand in that place, flickering like astral lights, with knowledge behind us and, in front, promise rising and falling in a swell. That’s the moment I search for in a play- where all life is swirling around a person, with all the consequences and results of their actions, and all the revelations that have come to life laying naked the inner ambitions which have manipulated their public self and tried to fulfil their wishes. Where the noise of their outlandish behaviour, their bad jokes and distractions has fallen away with the laughter of the audience that has been drawn along and where, instead, is revealed the frightened baby we spend our lives hiding, sitting there in the spotlight in a moment of reckoning.
That’s where my plays start, with that vision, seeing that moment which the past and the future circle, with the events that have led to it swimming in the surrounding coils of life. I follow them and I want you to follow them with me, to understand what has led us here with humour and song, failed love and secrets.
