News: Listless

We have been busy developing our show Listless which we hope to develop and rehearse in the future.

Listless takes place in a rundown cafĂ© and shows a group of people brought together to discuss death, They don’t know why they have been brought together or who arranged the meeting, but they are there and they have a job to do. Terminally ill, rapt with guilt, looking for an answer, they all have an immediate relationship with death and they want to talk about it. Through their musings on suicide, dying, grief, forgiveness, the afterlife and funerals, we see not only the end but the beginning of life.

‘Death is not the end of everything. Rain still falls, wars still rage and in increasingly bizarre situations people still fall in love.’

Hamlet

As you may have seen from our twitter feed today (@AboveBounds) we have been thinking about Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Now one of the set-backs of Twitter of course is the 140 character limit. Shakespeare had no such limitations, so here we would like to share with you a slightly longer quote and hopefully spark a thought. It’s a well known speech but that doesn’t relinquish any of its potency. Enjoy!

I have of late–but
wherefore I know not–lost all my mirth, forgone all
custom of exercises; and indeed it goes so heavily
with my disposition that this goodly frame, the
earth, seems to me a sterile promontory, this most
excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave
o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted
with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to
me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours.
What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason!
how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how
express and admirable! in action how like an angel!
in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the
world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me,
what is this quintessence of dust?

Hamlet, Act two, Scene two, William Shakespeare
