Four performers come and go in a confusion of roles, costumes, scene changes, and light effects. Butlers, servants, messengers, soldiers, doctors, lovers, murderers, dancers, drunks, scoundrels, liars, and innocents are all here, along with queens and kings in tattered robes, all of them wailing in the fake snow that falls somewhere between the bookcase, the coffee table, the dead tree and the ironing board. A storm outside. A war in the distance. The sound of applause.

Tim Etchells (1962) is a British artist, writer and professor. He co-founded theatre company Forced Entertainment in 1984 and has been its artistic director ever since. His diverse body of work encompasses performance, visual art and fiction and explores contemporary identity, language and the limits of representation. Using strong but comical means, he creates thought-provoking encounters in public spaces through neon and LED signs.
