"The inspiration for this play is a real place. A place you wouldn't notice unless you have need of it, and even then you have to look hard. It's grimy, grilled windows blend with the aged bricks, which in turn melt into the surrounding smoky urban sprawl. Easy to miss." "From across the street the little shop appears, like a grubby ghost from a distant decade. It is far from inviting, and yet how can the imagination resist entering this strange, claustrophobic space to read what's there, written in the dust." "Vacuum is a play which fascinates me. The confinement of two characters in one place and real time, paradoxically has limitless possibilities. With Ray and Mr Ashburner we move between countries, centuries, galaxies; histories are revealed, a relationship forged and a terrible journey taken. The writing is taut - full of dark humour, sudden music - and, like all good drama, picks at the scab of the human condition."
