Marabou Stork Nightmares
Roy Strang's nightmares.
This was a very ambitious production with a brilliant set. The very first night Jim Cunningham, who played Roy Strang, lost his voice completely, so the show had be cancelled. I went along to a later show at the Festival Theatre. I found the rape scenes harrowing. It went on for eight minutes and it was a lot harder to sit through than it was to write. I think when you write something you're very detached, but when you see acted by committed performers...well, I suppose that's the power of live theatre.
