By Martin Crimp with Laura Morante and Gigio Alberti directed by Roberto Andò.
In Crimp’s captivating psychological thriller, protagonists Richard and Corrine move to the country for a fresh start, but it is far from rural bliss. Richard is a successful doctor who discovers a young girl, Rebecca, on the side of the road unconscious and brings her back to the family home.
The question is why she was on the side of the road, who is she and why did he bring her home? As the play unfolds these questions are answered. The three characters only occupy the stage in pairs in this game of secrets and lies.
Crimp’s plays tend to ensure that not all the audience come out with the same answers, leaving you to make up your own mind, while the questions raised ensure you continue to think about the play long after the curtain falls. In English.
