Third Person

26 June 2011

My play Third Person was one of 6 scripts short-listed for the 2011 Griffin Playwriting Award. Here’s the synopsis:

Berlin in the bitterly cold winter of 1946/7. The city is in ruins, its future uncertain. It is a place of refugees, soldiers, rubblewomen and trauma. Black marketeer, Anton, wants to get out before his past catches up with him. He needs Portia’s help. She has lost everything except her faith—in the law. Meanwhile Jessekah returns to father’s house to find it occupied by someone else.

Third Person is part allegory, part a sort-of-sequel to The Merchant of Venice; it is about notions of indebtedness and debts of all kinds—moral, political, and emotional as well as financial.
