Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead are back with the third instalment of their non-linear trilogy on radical narrative.

The play springboards off the finale of the film Shawshank Redemption, in which the viewer conveniently overlooks the enormous flaw in the final escape plan – how could Andy replace the poster if he was already inside the tunnel? In turn, the performance asks: what holes are the audience prepared to overlook in everyday life in order to stay comfortable? Work from the duo has previous been described as “horrible[,] brilliant, scintillating, guillotine catching the sunlight as it falls dazzling, but also horrible”, so expect a harrowing discourse with plenty of pay-off.
