|I Hope it's Not Raining in London|
“Two people, trapped in a room. One is almost finished but the other is not yet ready. The other will be ready, but just not yet.”
In June/July this year, a team of young artists will be touring from Newcastle to Tuggerah, Sydney and Melbourne! I Hope it’s Not Raining in London is a contemporary, hybrid-experimental theatre piece which sets out to explore our perceived realities and the effects of trauma.
Young emerging artist, Nicholas Thoroughgood, has written a sophisticated short play, which places two strangers together in a mysterious room. Neither of them has knowledge of where they are currently existing and how they got there- and the newest to arrive has no memories whatsoever. Small boxes appear sporadically- containing objects which trigger memories for them both and gradually their significant life stories are remembered and painfully explored.
Playwright: Nicholas Thoroughgood
Venue: PACT, 107 Railway Parade, Erskineville NSW 2043
