Michaelmas Week 5
'A pool, she had a pool. Of all of us the most – at least in the eyes of this so-called world – the most successful of us.'
Mark Ravenhill's 'pool (no water)' is a dark and twisted tale of the jealousy that drives a group of artists navigating adulthood and all its accessories: money, substance abuse, grief. When the most successful amongst them suffers a terrible accident, the group think not of her wellbeing, instead seeing a chance to manipulate her agony to their own advantage. This experimental play makes use of a fragmented voice to unfold the details of their shared act of deception.
