‘No-one looks at strangers. No-one pays attention. ‘Cos attention is a weapon, now. Short and sharp. People keep it locked up in rifle cases for special occasions.’
A pair of high-school lovers reunite in the twilight of middle age. They make dreams, and plans, and re-enactments. They try to remember, and they try to forget.
Who can face a wasted life?
Eric Gardiner’s
Prayer Machine, a world premiere developed through Red Stitch’s INK new writing program, marries hypnotic black comedy with a tender exploration of ageing and missed connection.
In a place where the twin addictions of nostalgia and technology collide, how can you love someone who isn’t really there?
