Martin Crimp’s “Attempts on Her Life” is a courageous and fascinating experiment in a new kind of playwriting. It has no plot in the traditional sense, no central character that actually appears on the stage, and it has no supporting character who is likable or who invites anything but a fleeting identification of the audience. The play is divided into 17 scenarios that present in different ways the non-existing character Anne as a personification of contemporary terror and desire. It is also an attempt to understand and explain a young man’s rebellion against the present world and the efforts to change it.
“The action in play takes place in an advertising agency – a place where slogans and products representing “normality” are forged on daily basis. It’s a story about how the factory of consumption and normality becomes perverted itself.”, – says director Oskaras Korsunovas.
