Breath in the Morgue

Date:17 June 2010
Time:14.00 and 21.00

Being the third play from Tom Markham, Breath in the Morgue seeks to

explore the psychology of totalitarianism and happiness, creationary power

and engineered subservience, abuse and love of those weaker, and the

effects of dreams upon everything. All of this, seen through the eyes of

someone the Nazis would have classified as 'asocial' due to his mental

condition. It is a dark piece with moments of twisted humour. The

production is minimalist with very little set and few props, relying

instead on lighting, projection and the performers to create the bleak

world in which the play is set.
