Projects: Theatre


Adrian has begun work on the score for Marianne Elliot's forthcoming production of a new play by Sam Holcroft, Rules For Living, that will open in the National Theatre's Dorfman theatre in March 2015.

From the NT's site:

"Everyone creates their own coping strategies or rules for living. But what happens when an extended family gathers in the kitchen for a traditional Christmas and they each follow those rules, rigidly?

With all due respect, that sounds like the biggest load of pseudo-psychological nonsense I've ever heard in my life.

As long-held mechanisms for survival are laid bare, even Mum, who's been preparing this lunch since last January, becomes embroiled.

Long-held rivalries and resentments will out. Accusations fly, relationships deconstruct, the rules take over.
