Synopsis:
The Broken is our most ambitious theatre event as a department in many years. A select group of students (both actors and designers) will begin with a single image this September, and by April 12 will have created (devised) a brand new play together. Based loosely on actual events, we will begin with the image of a fortified, barbed-wire fence in a foreign country. A middle-aged Bible translator stands on one side of the fence with a machete in his hands. On the other side stands a native of the country also wielding a machete. As we develop this play together, we will explore the tensions, paradoxes and complications inherent in the clash between two cultures with different ways of expressing their faith.
