Bryony Lavery’s play More Light tells the story of the recently deceased Chinese Emperor who, in order to keep the location of his tomb a secret had not only himself encased within the tomb but his entire army of craftsmen, builders and his finest courtiers. Also immured are his five young infertile wives. These women have had the best food and lived secure and luxurious lives, but now they are faced with making the most horrendous decisions in order to stay alive. Human behaviour pushed to the very limits are explored in this dramatic hour long performance directed and performed by YEP (Young Everyman Playhouse.)

Anne And Eva, Theatre Review. St. George’s Hall, Liverpool.

Cast: Justine Saville, John Gorman, Sam Teller, Sue Boardman, Isobel Balchin.

Some moments in history defy Humanity’s reason, they challenge us to rise above the savagery and disgrace placed upon our collective shoulders and become better, to come back to a place of sanity and rational thought; history repeats these lessons because it seems we constantly need to be reminded just how low we can quickly descend back into the mire, of how we can lurch and play into the hands of Fascism if we do not keep vigilant.

To want to escape the pressures of modern life is completely understandable, the way the world is at the best of times it’s hard to fit in, it’s demanding on the soul to try and keep up with the ever changing and fast, frenetic pace of it all and it’s no wonder that we are urged to find, to discover that happy place in which all our troubles can be forgotten for a while, in which making sense of our own identity is the main priority.
