… and continues with a brief synopsis of the play.
A peddler wakes up in a field, somewhere in London, surrounded by the burnt and empty remnants of the night before. With no memory of how he has come to be there, he knows he must go back to ‘the very start of it all’. His attempts to retrace events from the previous day lead him on a haunting journey where everything comes into question: his life, his world, his future.
Harry Melling’s remarkable debut play follows the day in the life of a man on the fringes of society as he battles difficult questions and attempts to come to terms with the answers.”
The play will be directed by Steven Atkinson, with set and costume design by Lily Arnold, lighting design by Azusa Ono, and sound design George Dennis.
