Theatre Short Things


Writing Public Speaking


Earth is a surrealist comic parable: part mime, part film, part circus-theatre. It tells the story of a war over a magic tree between a fat beer-guzzling capitalist and two ignorant avaricious peasants. While they are quarrelling, the tree god climbs up from beneath the root, and does a runner. A Chaplinesque chase ensues before the much enfeebled god is eventually captured, and brought caged before the court.
