Producers Rebecca James and Elvira Parr

A non-linear love story set in a dystopian world that nevertheless feels very close to home. Two people attempt to build and navigate a new relationship under the threat of the ‘Quietude Bill’, a government ruling that limits words to 140 a day. This play examines language and communication, censorship and control, and how we form connections with one another.

Amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
