About: SHOOT I DIDN'T MEAN THAT / THE LAST DAYS OF MANKIND

Marking the centenary of the outbreak of WW1, Time Zone Theatre and Austrian director Pamela Schermann invited British playwrights to respond to Karl Krausís epic The Last Days of Mankind. The resulting double-bill aims to encourage an intercultural dialogue about global conflict by combining a play by one of the most influencial Austrian playwrights of the 20th century with emerging British talents. Out of 100+ entries, the panel selected Catriona Kerridge's Shoot, I didnít mean that, which will run alongside a staging of the epilogue of Kraus's epic.

SHOOT, I DIDN'T MEAN THAT by Catriona Kerridge

"I should have been drunk. That would have made sense, a drunk Brit abroad. But I wasn't. I was sober..."
This dark comedy follows four womenís strange and surreal downfall as they become intoxicated by the great wars and politics. Juliet waltzes into a difficult situation at Viennaís famous flea market; two schoolgirls struggle not to giggle during Remembrance Day; an interpreter breaks her voice. A play about a shared fear for the future, inspired by Karl Krausí The Last Days of Mankind.

THE LAST NIGHT by Karl Kraus
Epilogue to THE LAST DAYS OF MANKIND

Karl Krausí satirical play responds to the outbreak of the First World War, its impact on the lives of ordinary people, and the role of the media. The epilogue The Last Night is an apocalyptic vision of a world destroyed by war.

Directed by Pamela Schermann
Produced by Time Zone Theatre

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and the Austrian Cultural Forum London.
