This is a play about the British Isles, its past and its present.
In a senior common room a group of first-year undergraduates are troubled, not by the weight of their workload, but by a ‘noisy’ ghost. They decide to do what any group self-respecting and intelligent university students would do in such a situation – get out the Ouija Board, confront their spiritual irritant and lay them to rest – only to be confronted by the full weight of Britain’s colonial past – in all its gory glory.
If you think you know about British history, Empire, slavery, economics, racism and humanity, think again. As the planche on the Ouija Board skates from letter to letter at an ever-increasing breakneck speed, the students are catapulted through space and time, witnessing the injustices, incongruities and inhumanity of the past.
This is a smorgasbord of genres and styles. Fusing naturalism with physical theatre, spoken-word, absurdism, poetry and direct address – event-theatre that whips along with the grace, pace and hypnotic magnetism of a hurricane.
