The value of this play is what you think after you leave. In that sense, it is a success. I woke up during the night thinking about it. There are shocking elements, but that is not what woke me up. It was wondering about violence as presented in the safety of the theater and violence in real life. One point is that actors pay a price in real life for portraying violence in the theater. Another is making us think about what constitutes violence and how we react to it. Several elements in the play brought more violence into the theater than someone being shot. You will pay a price for attending, but I think you should take a chance and see it.
Quotes & Highlights
“A dazzling theatrical experience that lets nobody off the hook.”—The London Guardian
Read more about the play and author Tim Crouch at his website, News From Nowhere.
Without giving too much away, The Author challenges the conventions of theatre and changes your perspective as an audience member. Crouch plays himself, a playwright who has written a disturbing work filled with taboo sex and violence. As he and other participants in the production discuss the process and the aftermath, the audience can’t help but be drawn into the story.
