The Particulars

buy tickets

The Particulars is the story of one insomniac’s struggle to maintain a daily routine born of emotional denial in the face of a home invasion. By day, Gordon forges systematically ahead, assiduously in control of every aspect of his life. But by night, the scratching which he has begun to hear in his wall’s is unravelling him, driving Gordon to the edge of cosmic desperation. Gordon plays himself and his own narrator, through deadpan third person narrative, giving the piece a surreal buzz.
