Typographer's Dream by Adam Bock at The Rag Factory
Hokum Theatre presents The Typographer's Dream by Adam Bock, at the Rag Factory, off Brick lane, east London, from 1 to 10 March 2011.
Examines the details that define our lives.
The three characters are the heart of the play - the first, Dave, is a stenographer. He transcribes hearings at the speed of speech. The transcriptions are infallible, but Dave has problems. His friend Annalise is a geographer. She studies the arbitrary lines that define the world, but seeing problems doesn’t make her any better at solving them. Finally there’s Margaret, the typographer. Employed to change the truth with a typeface, Margaret finds she can only tell someone else’s truth, never her own.
