A dark comedy for the post 9/11 generation

Delayed passengers grumble about a bomb scare at the airport. A man and a woman commit adultery. Office workers bicker. Two grannies in a playground complain about their men. Policemen in their barracks scrap amongst themselves. The passengers on the plane finally prepare for take-off. By the end we realise these apparently random scenes are in fact linked by an almost invisible thread, subtly indicating that we bear responsibility for one another even in our soulless urban limbo.

The Crescent Theatre Company is presenting three plays for Spring 2009 that deal with one of the major issues confronting mankind: terrorism. These plays raise questions about conflict – both personal and ideological – and try to make sense of a world that often appears to make no sense at all.
