In purgatory. Three Urns. From each, a head protrudes – a man, his wife and his mistress.
A bitter love triangle. Each character embroiled. Each head provoked into speech by spotlight.
"Adulterers, take warning, never admit."
Fortune Theatre in collaboration with South Island designers - sculptor Hannah Kidd and sound engineer Stephen Kilroy - present PLAY by Samuel Beckett.
Directed by Lara Macgregor, this fusion of visual art, soundscapes and rapidly delivered dialogue creates a truly genre-defying live art installation not to be missed.
PLAY is 20 minutes in duration and will be performed in repetition during the view hours. Stay for 5 minutes or watch the whole thing over and over again.
