The Quiet Zone
The Quiet Zone is a short, one woman play which details the daily routine of a library assistant. The play explores themes of alienation and identity as well as the pressures that the library services undergo in the age of austerity. The library assistant carries out the daily tasks of shelving, looking for book requests and checking emails. When the squeaky automatic door of the library opens, she gets excited, but no one appears. When the phone rings, she answers with anticipation, encountered only with an answer machine message. But meanwhile she has been chipping away at something, which should intrigue the audience until the final reveal.
The Life We Lived
The Life We Lived by award winning Swindon playwright Matt Fox follows the relationship between a funeral director and the woman who will eventually become a corpse in his parlour. An old fashioned love story in many ways; but with a strong helping of gallows humour. Two people find themselves together and live out a life of joy and tragedy, which will speak to the romantic and cynic in all of us.
The Life We Lived examines life & death, love & hate, potential & disappointment, through gripping story which is both real and imagined. The gift that life brings, as well as the certainty that this gift will be wasted are the crux of a piece which juggles morbid humour and gut wrenching poignancy.
This performance has a recommended age restriction of 14+
