Nuclear War + Buried (by David Spencer) and Graceland (by Max Saunders-Singer)
Information for Nuclear War + Buried (by David Spencer) and Graceland (by Max Saunders-Singer) at Old Red Lion, Inner London (Play). "I want, one more time, to be absolutely in the moment." A series of suggestions on desire, death and time. "I am going to try as hard as I can to not be a human being." Simon Stephens' NUCLEAR WAR, a heartbreaking and soul-stopping piece for movement is revived in a collaboration between multiple award winning and critically acclaimed theatre collectives, BoxLess Theatre, Bag of Beard, Grindstone & Take Two Theatricals, accompanied by the premieres of two new pieces of theatre. An unmissable triple bill production. In 1943, north of Salerno, Italy, Max Spencer was buried alive. He was the father of BURIED's writer, David Spencer. Its actor is his real Grandson. A story passed across generations. A harrowing true story, a truthful examination of the human condition and a non-linear, groundbreaking anti-war play - BURIED comes from twice Verity Bargate award winning international writer, David Spencer. In Graceland, Max Saunders-Singer's darkly comic new piece, Mr. Chrichton, an overworked science teacher, is at breaking point, but he's still stood in front of the class banging his head on the whiteboard. There's something hidden in his desk, and he's determined to teach 9D one last lesson. Don't push him over the edge, children, he might just open that drawer... This unique three-play production fuses the first revival of a remarkable piece of writing for movement with two new plays, which when combined ask questions about love and loss, what do we do next when faced with the devastating, the unimaginable. How do we survive the insurmountable? Where are we now, and where are we going?
Approximate runtime 135minutes (including any interval).
