Descrizione

'You weren't moving. Your hair was soaked. We saw you.'

Alice and Michael met six years ago. Three years later their daughter Lily was born. Now, in a Yorkshire meadow, just past midnight, they're having an argument. Because Alice is cold, she's tired, and Michael won't stop telling her that she died twelve hours ago.

A poignant exploration of what it means to say goodbye, This Is Living was first performed in a critically acclaimed and award-winning production at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014. It had its London premiere at Trafalgar Studios, London, in 2016.

'A remarkable debut from an impressive new voice' - A Younger Theatre

performed.

ACT ONE

Monday 4th July. Just after midnight; Sunday, minutes ago. A riverbank. Otley, West Yorkshire. The water laps by the bank, the wind slips through the nettles. MICHAEL (thirty-one) still in yesterday’s clothes, sits, staring down at the bottom of the bank. The body of ALICE (twenty-eight) lays face-down at the edge of the water.

He stares at it, for too long a time.

He moves towards her, crouches down. Her clothes and hair are soaked, her shoes missing, her face and neck spattered with mud. He gently lifts her face out of the water, stares into her eyes, distant, lifeless. Beat. He lifts her body up onto the bank. Looks at her face, one final moment before closing her eyes. Proceeds to make his way back up the hill.

Without warning, ALICE lurches up to sitting as water explodes from her mouth. She collapses back down to the ground, her eyes snapping open.

He stares at her, unable to comprehend the situation, as she rolls over and pushes herself up onto her hands and knees, laughing uncontrollably.
