Illuminate Presents: Absent

A Reunion with Echoes from the past

A double bill of new writing from playwright Neil Smith that brings together the darkly comic stories of two unconnected couples, crippled by the reverberations of shared guilt. In Reunion, George and Jude find themselves withdrawing into their past as they nervously await the arrival of their daughter and nine-year-old granddaughter. In Echoes, John makes a surprise visit to Helene, whom he abandoned nine years ago, seeking answers about the nine-year-old girl that has been haunting his dreams. Absent is a bittersweet exploration into the power of memory, the lies that bind, and how far we’ll go to justify our past. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
