At turns hilarious and shocking, Attempts on Her Life is a theatrical rollercoaster of twentieth-century obsessions.
Martin Crimp’s ‘17 scenarios for the theatre’ presents an intriguing array of nameless characters who attempt to invent the perfect story to encapsulate our time. As one says, “The point is that the search for a point is pointless.”
This highly original and ambitious work has been translated into more than 20 languages since its premiere at the Royal Court Theatre 25 years ago. Emma Baggott directs this Guildhall School production.
‘It speaks to the modern age … a work which implies virtually everything in modern society conspires to reduce our sense of self.’ The Guardian
