By Cathy Petőcz. Directed by Caroline Stacey. The Street Theatre. World Premiere. 18 – 26 October 2014.
Visually beautiful, darkly poetic, wryly self-referential, Where I End & You Begin is a surreal, highly stylised play exploring personhood, memory and identity. Ostensibly about two private detectives in an undefined science fiction space setting, the writing has roots in the absurdist theatre of the last century, such as Brecht, Beckett and Ionesco, with nods to Terry Gilliam and scriptwriter Charlie Kaumann. As with all absurdist theatre the fun is in working out what it all means. The audience brings their own experience and will come out with differing interpretations.
