The Better Craftsman (UK)
Bringing alive the sights and sounds of the street, this darkly comic
new play follows a young insomniac as he journeys through the bright
lights of the city at night. Oli roams the streets, determined to find a
spectacle to gawk at, and he likes nothing more than to sit and stare.
That is until it begins to stare back. As vivid as a midnight joyride,
Cruelty is about the dubious pleasure we get from what we see and
whether we can ever close our eyes to it.
‘Astonishingly vivid, allusive and life-enhancing’ (DailyInfo.co.uk).
