The cut is about how we go on in life. For John the cut is a custom. He is longing his whole life for the cut. It is an escape out of this bleak world. For him the cut is a relief, like it is the last fix for a junky. Paul assists the cut. He is longing for an end too. But he has not the strength the leave the cut. He is looking for a last repentance of his deed. He needed outside help to release him form his responsibilities.
I think the lack of changing the society is the main aspect of the drama. New situations must come from ourselves and not from outside. Ravenhill drew the circumstances in very thin lines. The imprisonment of Paul is not really mentioned in the text. You read it form a single line. It concentrates on the fighting against the inner feeling of the actors. It is a gloomy drama like the process or 1984.

The second play is about a film producer and an actress. They are rehearsing the script about Amy and Mohammed. It is a love situation of a one night stand. The woman lost a friend on 9/11 and her love is full of resentment and hates. They drama play with the fears and problems we have since then. It makes you think about freedom and values you have. The film is on the brim what we will have in the future.
