Our Shadows Walk - Etcetera Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
UNFINISHED Business Theatre Company is presenting Our Shadows Walk, by emerging young playwright Danny Pegg, at Camden’s Etcetera Theatre – from June 18 to July 5, 2014.
Ben has been told he has committed high treason. He knows he didn’t do it – but they’ve got it on tape. Terence and Goldsmith are new at work. They’ve really got to impress. Then – they meet Ben.
Short-listed for the Verity Bargate Award which recognizes distinct new voices of future theatre makers, Our Shadows Walk is described as a piercing drama with black humour which captures a picture of Britain through a truly cracked lens.
Alex Israel directs a cast that includes Lesley Curtis-Brown, Jacob Dunn, Anna McCormick, Lisa Morris and Eddie Toll.
Pegg wrote Our Shadows Walk a few days after the dreadful murder of Drummer Lee Rigby. He wanted to examine what might happen in the future when that sort of incident was commonplace; and what would people’s lives be like then.
Unfinished Business Theatre Company was set up in 2010 by Danny Pegg and Alex Israel. To date, the company has produced five plays.
Tickets: £13.50, £10 concessions (OAP/Student/Equity/Etcetera Member) – available from the box office on 0207 482 4857 or online at www.etceteratheatre.com/.
