Way Up to the Sky
(New Wrighting Series)
13.09.2014 - 21.09.2014

The night when two strangers finally break a long silence, an ending beyond their wildest imaginations awaits…
A poignant view into our city’s dazzling light and glamour, led by a stellar cast of theatre veterans

A sleepless night. A dog gathers all its courage and jumps off the windowsill, into the darkness, like a shooting star flashing across the soundless firmament.
Inside a small flat within a public estate, two elderly occupants live together yet do not interact, until they at last break the silence.
“Kill me,” says Mr A. Mr B does not answer.
“Kill me now,” Mr A demands again.
Still, Mr B does not answer.
Mr A picks up a knife. Without the courage to commit suicide, his wish can only be granted through another person.
Being forced to murder, Mr B wants to run away, yet he is trapped within his own memories.
The clock is still ticking, keeping count of the passing of time as the noise of arguments and the sound of telephone ringing come from the flat…
“A little space shuttle soars into the sky, it soars into the sky… ” The theme song of a children’s programme.
The night has passed. Have the barriers been broken? Have they been granted their wishes?
