“....a powerful, entertaining piece"
Why on earth would you name a play as good as this Bacon?! I guess to keep the play a secret, however this work certainly does not deserve to be.
Bacon is a two-man-play written by Sophie Swithinbank that reveals how the lives of two school boys, Mark and Darren, become precariously balanced and intertwined from year 10 until its resolve four years later, or is it? Mark takes the lead – this is his story, or is it?
Director Matthew Iliffe and set designer Natalie Johnson build on the metaphor by balancing the whole performance on and around huge seesaw that fills the stage.
