A darkly absurd play from the authors of Terrorism.

A young man drops out of university and goes to the police. He's done nothing wrong, he just wants a job. A particular job. Playing the victim in murder reconstructions. Maybe by getting close to death he can manage to cheat his own.

The Presnyakov Brothers' play Playing the Victim was first staged, in this English translation by Sasha Dugdale, at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2003, co produced with the Royal Court Theatre and Told by an Idiot. The production was directed by Richard Wilson.
