Testimony at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden
Just an Act will present Testimony, written and directed by Loretta Monaco at the Etcetera Theatre, a pub theatre in Camden, north London as part of the Camden Festival from 10 August to 30 August 2015.
Described as a "sinister, existentialist play", the drama is set in the basement cells of a Manhattan Criminal Court on the night of the 1987 Wall Street crash. An impeccably dressed man shares a cell with a vagrant who wishes to make his acquaintance while they wait to see a judge. Their careless banter quickly turns to accusation and brutal assumptions about how the other half lives, witnessed by a guard who takes perverse pleasure in the tensions that escalate between the two men. A nightmarish world of past crimes and misdemeanours unfolds when the court closes and the men realise they are locked in for the night.
The cast includes Chris Anderson as 'Sir', George Johnston as 'Punt' and Steve Mace as 'Guard'.
The production is recommended for audiences aged 18+.
