Fri 20 Oct: Post-show Discussion
Please note that, regrettably, the upstairs theatre is not currently accessible for wheelchair users.
We can’t help putting together what’s been lost or destroyed. Our brain takes tiny pieces of information and turns them into stories that we think make sense.
Fragments tells the lost myth of Cresphontes, a boy brought up to avenge his murdered father and brothers. Piecing his story together will take you on a journey through the fragments of your own life: receipts, childhood memories, things half heard.
Friday 20 October 9pm
Post show talk with
Russell Bender, co-writer and director
Dr Laura Swift, co-writer and Senior Lecturer in Classics, The Open University
Dr Charlotte Russell, Senior Lecturer in Psychology King's College London

"Making complex ideas emotionally engaging and allowing philosophical concepts to be looked at in fresh and subtle ways, Game of Life is a fascinating play." Exeunt Magazine on Game of Life
“An imaginative, well-crafted work about the perils of sharing online which stays with you, even as you tweet how much you enjoyed it” **** Culture Whisperer on Darknet
