'In failure... all are equal.'
"Grandiloquence chronicles one long night in the lives of four city-dwelling twenty-somethings: the prophetic Cigar-man, the relentless and beautiful Washing-man, the desperate Other-man and the star-crossed Girl. Everyone has ideals but it is a lucky man that does not, at some point in his life, realise that his ideals are impossible to live up to. He can then either abandon them or render them useless by living in denial. Grandiloquence is set as its characters are forced to make this decision and live with their acceptance or rejection of imperfection. Grandiloquence is not a depressing play, it is a frank statement of what means to call yourself 'mature'.
