You Always Forget Something & Thin Man Fat Man
By Virgilio Piñera
3 March – 6 March 7.30pm
Matinees 5 March & 6 March 2.30pm
Studio 2

Directed by Grainne Byrne
Translated by Kate Eaton

A Virgilio Piñera double bill.

These two short absurdist plays are British premiers translated by Kate Eaton. Both are fascinating for different reasons, yet both explore the distortion of our modern values. You Always Forget Something is a highly energised physical comedy for four women exploring our crazy systems for finding order in a increasingly chaotic world. As the women try to wrestle control over their trivia, their lives become completely overtaken to lunatic proportions

Thin Man, Fat Man is a sinister and grotesque exploration of greed and exploitation. Two Laurel and Hardyesque men sit in hospital; one is rich, controlling, powerful and fat while the other is poor, thin, hungry and powerless. As the fat man exploits the thin man’s misery, he is blithely unaware of the monstrous power of the thin man’s hunger. ‘Hunger is insolvent, and it will be fed’ Homer.

Performed by BA (Hons) Acting:Collaborative and Devised Theatre students
