Attempts to define her? Attempts to destroy her? Or attempts to destroy herself? Join us in the fabulous Bristol venue, the Loco Klub. Running from the 18th-20th March, Bristol University’s DramSoc steps onstage to bring ‘Attempts On Her Life’ alive.

Doors open at 19:00 for a 19:30 start and the show runs for roughly an hour and a half with no interval. General admission tickets are £12 while student tickets are £9 with DramSoc members buying them for £8, purchase them through Headfirst.

But what is the show about? Our director describes it through these words:

It’s timely. It’s distressing. It’s funny. It’s sick.

It’s sexy. It’s dark. It’s political. It’s personal. It’s obscene.

It’s an attempt to encapsulate our time.

In a post-modern, post-radical, post-human, post-theatrical world, our ensemble takes to the stage, armed with a salmon and screwdriver. Through the words of Martin Crimp, one of the most well-renowned British playwrights of the twenty-first century, we offer our theatre in its undigested form.

Who is Anne?

She’s the girl next door

She’s the fatal flaw

She’s the reason for the Trojan war

She’s a pornographic movie star

A killer, and a brand of car.

 

She exists in the words of people who do not know her and she could be any one of us.

Sentenced to a life under observation

Forced to find a meaning

Compelled to find connection

When the world beyond theatre is splintering, we stand on a stage with a broken mirror.
