“Two bombs in one day is a foul coincidence”
“Don’t forget the lightning strike”
A normal day.
A person stands in the market square watching the world go by.
What happens next verges on the ridiculous?
There’s ice cream. Sunshine. Shops. Some dogs. A wedding. Bombs. Candles. Blood. Lightning. Sandwiches. Snipers. Looting. Gunshots. Babies. Actors. Azaleas. Famine. Fountains. Statues. Atrocities.
And tanks. (Probably).
Rory Mullarkey’s new play asks whether things really are getting worse. And if we care.
“[Someone screaming]: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH”
Rory Mullarkey returns to the Royal Court following his debut here with The Wolf from the Door in 2014. In the same year, he was awarded the George Devine Award, the Pinter Commission, and the James Tait Black Prize for Drama.
