The imagined loneliness of the jealous dead
Referencing and imagining the fumbled communications of a famous domestic tragedy projected into the contemporary realm. Featuring a haunted suit of armour, a fictional torture device, and Woods and Manderson-Galvin’s on stage fantasies. Unnerving and revelatory – Play is an exercise in literary archaeology and anarchic abandon.
