The City

By Martin Crimp

Cast list + favourite lines

Clair - Wendy Haines -‘Take off your hat. And don’t wear your badge indoors. We know who you are.’

Chris - Kai Green - ‘Even the roses have changed.’

Jenny - Amee Freyone - ‘Nothing feels right. Everything-don’t you think?- seems awkward and artificial.’


"Clair wants to write, Chris wants to work and Jenny wants to sleep. Can any of this be possible in a city which is collapsing and turning to dust? Will their conversations hold their world together? Or will their attempts to seem less unnatural and inartificial fail?"
