AT HOME – A COFFEE CUP – JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020
CREATE AT HOME RESIDENCY
PRODUCED BY MARK PENZAK
In residence Monday 13 January – Sunday 2 February 2020
A Coffee Cup is a ten-minute mini play that explores private conversations conducted in public spaces.
The audience – who are first invited to order a cup of coffee as if in a café – will sit at one of four tables in groups of three or four where an actor is seated. The actor will talk to them as if they’re old friends sharing a confidence, with each actor telling a different story. The whole event runs for 90 minutes with the audience arriving throughout, getting their coffee and joining the first available table. The audience’s attention is centred on their own table but they’ll overhear fragments from the other’s – some loud and boisterous, others quiet and sad.
