“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’s previous plays include the National Theatre’s production of Saint George and the Dragon, Each Slow Dusk (Pentabus Theatre) and The Wolf from the Door at the Royal Court.

Casting announced for Rory Mullarkey’s Pity at the Royal Court
Monday, June 11, 2018

Casting has been announced for the Royal Court’s upcoming production of the Rory Mullarkey’s new play Pity, which is set to open in July. Pity has been described as Monty Python-meets-Armageddon be designer Chloe Lamford, and promises exploding ice cream vans, a meteor strike, numerous vehicles (possibly including tanks), and around 20 explosions. It sees Mullarkey, whose previous work includes St George and the Dragon at the National Theatre, ask ‘whether things are really getting worse’.
