Preview: ear for eye by the Royal Court Theatre
“Marchin’ days is over man.”
ear for eye presents the newest work from Olivier and BAFTA Award-winning writer and director debbie tucker green, now considered one of theatre’s most original and internationally acclaimed voices. green has previously worked on plays for the Royal Court, including a profoundly affectionate, passionate devotion to someone (-noun), hang, truth & reconciliation, and random.
In this new work, green captures snapshots of lives, and experiences of protest; we see the differing effects of violence and non-violence, direct action vs demonstrations, watching as various characters navigate their way through society today.
