EVEN STILLNESS BREATHES SOFTLY AGAINST A BRICK WALL
‘A lovely play… twinning great humour and strong emotion… all power to this tight little team.’
I wonder what people care about in a war zone.
I wonder in what ways their problems change.
Yes you’re fighting for your life but what about your bills?
Two people whose lives are an orchestra of alarm clocks, traffic lights, advertising, emails, credit cards, meal deals, phone calls, breaking news, loyalty cards, wi-fi, meetings, meetings, meetings…
What happens when the modern world begins to erode your mind; when you start to blur the food you eat with the numbers you crunch? How far would you go to get the things you want? Would you sacrifice your place in the queue?
What would happen if you just said no?
