Title Attempts On Her Life
Start Date 16/05/2008
End Date 24/05/2008
Abstract Subtitled ’17 scenarios for theatre’ this piece is bold in not allocating lines to any specific character. Central narrative about a character who may, or may not, exist.A series of darkly comic, irony-laden scenarios in which the identity of Annie, Anja or Anne is repeatedly imagined, discussed, dissected and possibly dismissed.Martin Crimp’s postmodern play subtitled ’17 scenarios for the theatre’, is a rollercoaster of 21st Century obsessions. From pornography and ethnic violence, to terrorism and unprotected sex, its strange array of nameless characters attempt to invent the perfect story to encapsulate our time. Shocking and hilarious by turns, it’s as innovative as theatre can get.By special arrangement with Dominie pty ltd
