Attempts on Attempts

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Attempts on Attempts is based on Martin Crimp’s Attempts on her life. This adaptation was staged at Central Saint Martins, Studio Theatre 30 Nov – 1 Dec. The actors are staff working across the university and this piece, Kinda Funny which I’ve designed and directed featured Shaun, the face of student services office at Central Saint Martins. This piece is about misogyny, racism, arms ownership set in an American white trash living room. The TV plays violent football game footages which then switches to CNN mass shooting news reports.

“It’s been twenty years since Crimp wrote this play. What’s changed? Less shootings? Less racism? Less extremism?”
