Games and After Liverpool @ The Shelley Theatre
11 May @ 7:30 pm - 8:35 pm£10
In GAMES, a group of actors are trying to put on a play about the Vietnam War, specifically the My Lai Massacre. The piece questions the reasons for theatre and the responsibility of theatre makers and theatre goers. The audience become a part of the performance, and the lines between acting and reality are blurred. Not only does GAMES ask some serious questions, but it also teases the audience and leaves plenty of room for laughter.
The second piece, AFTER LIVERPOOL, is based on ‘Knots’, the work of Scottish Psychiatrist, and 70s cultural icon R.D. Laing. With nothing but four actors, a bench and an apple, Blind Elephant strip communication down to its core; two people having a conversation.
Communication is so often associated with technology, but what about just choosing the right words and being honest face-to-face with the person you love? A coin toss before the performance will allocate roles between two gender blind couples.
