When you find yourself stuck in something resembling a rabbit hole,
what do you have to do to find a way out?
A professional man is joined by four other people in an unusual waiting room. Why are they there? Is anyone telling the truth?
As the enigmatic Mr Marshall poses some curious questions, which of us (including the audience) can take anything at face value?
All will be revealed by the end of Act Two.
Reasons for writing it:
This started out as an experiment – a blank page and a conversation between two men, with no formal concept of structure or plot. By the time the script was finished I felt I had produced a piece that could work on several different levels. The characters appear to be stereotypes even to the extent of their names. But each one has a deeper back story, and all are connected by the circumstances that develop along the way. The intention is to lead my audience on a journey that challenges their preconceptions. I want them to look at the differing perspectives we all have of each other, to peel back the layers and (maybe) find a surprise underneath.
This work has yet to be performed, and I am looking to work personally with any company willing to take it on.
