A stunning experimental short play by Caryl Churchill

"Churchill, who constantly reinvents dramatic form, has come up with something compelling and strange: an intimate revue about the increasing surreality of modern life." - Guardian "Puts one in mid of the painter Magritte...Each brief scene is preceded by doomy, tabloid television 'news music', and a graphic announcing some heavy topical subject - The War in Bosnia, for instance, or the Northern Ireland Peace Process. Then the performers... play a scene that has nothing to do with its title...The piece creates a haunting impression of urban alienation, self-obsession and pre-millennial tension" - Daily Telegraph -Churchill, who constantly reinvents dramatic form, has come up with something compelling and strange: an intimate revue about the increasing surreality of modern life.- - Guardian -Puts one in mid of the painter Magritte...Each brief scene is preceded by doomy, tabloid television 'news music', and a graphic announcing some heavy topical subject - The War in Bosnia, for instance, or the Northern Ireland Peace Process.
