From the void!
Alex, Ketu, Sophie and Nia find themselves in a mysterious void unsure of where they are and what is happening, until the 'Guide' appears. They have in fact died and the Guide advises them that, in order to leave the void, they are required to choose one single memory from their life to live and re-live for eternity; they must do this within an hour. It turns out that selecting that one memory, a memory that defines them as a person, is not as easy as it may seem and each of them has a couple of attempts to identify one.
The concept revolves around the concept of death being the final 'stop' and the way near death experiences make you re-evaluate your life - it also uses elements of 'magical realism' similar to that seen in the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It was developed using improvisation before being put down on paper and performed, to good reviews, at the Edinburgh Festival in 2002. What makes the play even more interesting and challenging is that the cast are required to create the sets and sound effects themselves.
Be prepared for an evening of fast moving, physical and thought provoking theatre.
