ANTROBUS & GONE

Genre: Drama
written, designed and directed by Ian W. Hill

part of THE COLLISIONWORKS 2011: AT THE ENDS (3 Terminal Plays)

Two one-act plays:

Antrobus

At the end of the world, or soon after, or soon before, as the ice rises and the food grows scarce, the six members of a “family” that has banded together for survival begin to turn on each other as the years of hardship, cabin fever, and resentment catch up with them, and neither the old or young members of the family are sure what to do next: stay still and avoid risk, or move forward and search for other people and ways of living in a changed world. The one thing they have to hold onto are the pages of a thick history book, telling the story of how the world came apart, which mysteriously comes apart itself every night and must be ritually restored, every single day . . .

Gone

At the end of a life, two dear old friends sit at a cafe table and reminisce. One of them will not be leaving. But before that, and before, during and after night falls, they will share, argue, debate, and discuss the details of their shared and separate lives, in a form of the English language that is nearly unrecognizable, made of almost nothing but portmanteau words and echoes of familiar sounds. But these sounds may become understandable and meaningful, if you really listen to them. But be careful how close you listen, as the pain is never far away.
