Joe is haunted by the voice of his dead wife as he sits alone in his bedsit. The cinematography explores the bodyscape of the human form in a fashion that emphasises the tension of the text. With Tom Hickey and Siobhan McKenna.
ALAN GILSENAN • 1986 • 38 MINS.
Catastrophe
A theatre director and his assistant arrange a protagonist, who stands on a black block submitting to their direction. Director David Mamet’s film of the play stars John Gielgud (in his last film role), Rebecca Pidgeon and Harold Pinter.
DAVID MAMET • 2001 • 7 MINS.
Play
From each of three urns, a head protrudes – a man and two women. Each character bitterly narrates the story of their role in a love triangle. (With Alan Rickman, Juliet Stephenson, Kristin Scott Thomas)
ANTHONY MINGHELLA • 2001 • 16 MINS.
Come and Go
Three women are on a bench facing the audience, reminiscing. Each woman leaves the stage briefly, and during each absence an appalling secret is whispered about the third – which the audience doesn’t hear. Paolo Dionisotti, Anna Massey and Sian Phillips play the three women.
JOHN CROWLEY • 2001 • 8 MINS.
