Product description


'...when one has penetrated the formal barrier, one finds that Crouch is delivering some fascinating propositions: that all art is the product of a particular culture, that today we are more obsessed by the life than the work and that we fetishise anything related to the artist.' --Guardian

'...a thrilling experiment... This simple story gives Crouch the chance to joyfully satirise academic descriptions of artistic creativity, and to comment on how film-makers, art critics and biographers vampirise the lives of artists. But as well as laughing at the blood suckers who slurp the life out of creativity, Crouch also explores the nature of theatre, and theatrical representation.' --Aleks Sierz, Arts Desk

'It's ambitious, both theatrically and intellectually, but what these theatre-makers are adept at doing is leaving room for concepts to circulate. The ambling setup of the first half might leave some fidgeting in their seats, but the slow delivery and long silences give priority to the play's groaning raft of ideas. Those ideas are swirling and slippery, taking up fluid residence in the mind. Adler & Gibb picks at notions of artistic value, of the relationship between art and meaning, of the relationship between art and life.' --What's On Stage
