FILM SCREENING / DRAMA
★★★★ “A sharply directed and brilliantly eerie nailbiter” (The Guardian)
★★★★ “A gorgeous, haunting monologue” (The Stage)
A special screening of a pioneering theatrical film. Grey Man is a thrilling exploration of how our perspective can completely reshape the world around us. Two women take wildly different paths in response to precisely the same events in this powerful play about the stories we tell and their power to haunt us or heal us…
This extraordinary piece of digital theatre is written by Lulu Raczka (Women, Beware The Devil, Almeida Theatre), directed by Robyn Winfield-Smith (Love and Information, Pleasance Theatre) and stars Kate O’Flynn (All Of It, Royal Court; Everyone Else Burns, C4; Landscapers, HBO) and Kristin Hutchinson (Beauty & The Beast, The Waves, National Theatre).
Director Robyn Winfield-Smith will host a discussion in the bar after each show to talk through the themes of the piece and the making of this pioneering theatre film.
About the film
Maya’s teenage older sister is always telling stories. Usually about the grey man from the high street, and the woman who turned him grey. That woman. She can turn anyone grey. First, it’s your breath, then your fingers, your insides. Then you go into lockdown…
So when Maya’s sister ups and moves into the cupboard one day, Maya thinks she knows why.
But what if her sister’s stories are concealing more difficult truths?
