Michaelmas Week 8
THE CLASS / EIGHTH QUARTER / PAPERCLIP MAXIMISER
Three experimental short plays from New Word Order
Oh! What a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive! Take note, you innocent, you naïve, The price that freedom will aggrieve.
A teacher struggles to define freedom to a class that does not care. A man with a plastic straw and a sore arm exists for another day in a dimly lit room. An anxious surveillance robot wonders what to do with itself now that it is alone.
Three new plays about liberty from the experimental drama group New Word Order in the modes of naturalism, surrealism and theatre of the absurd, and German expressionism. Written and directed by Jess Moor (Arthur Cotterell prize winner 2010), David Rattigan ("Extremely funny," Varsity; "Terrific energy," TCS), and Scott Aandrasden-Banach ("real talent ... moving and thought-provoking," TCS; "Punchy and succinct," Varsity).
