A group of strangers meet in a dirty subway station. They have arrived with limited personal belongings, their watches have stopped and they all claim to be in different cities. Soon they learn there is no way out of the station, and the unfortunate truth is told to them: they are all dead. Since subway stations have two sides, they reason the train leaving from one platform must be bound for heaven, while the train leaving from the other platform must be bound for hell. But which platform are they on? They reflect upon their lives, recalling and confessing past deeds of which they are not proud, hoping to figure out which platform is which. The arrival of someone from the other platform only complicates matters, and the answer remains unclear. As the subway train finally approaches, they must decide whether to stay and ponder their actions further, or to have faith and climb aboard to their final destination.
Act 2 – Audience
From the writer of ‘Noises Off’ and ‘Donkey Years’ comes ‘Audience’; a classic Michael Frayn comedy. Set in a theatre auditorium, the play charts an audience’s hilarious journey through the show they are watching. Together with useless ushers, late-comers and a man who cant stop laughing, even when it’s not funny! And all with the writer of the play present! Originally staring Stephen Fry, this is a ‘laugh a minute gem not to be missed!’
