One Day (2010)

One Day (2010)

Sometimes the smallest collisions can shake worlds. RBS Productions creates two pieces of essential theatre, exploring chance encounters between strangers. In Vauxhall, Summer, 12:05pm  12:55pm, Karen and Paddy are caught in a current of unexpected attraction; in Albion Place, Winter, 10:20am  11:10am, Carl and Jordan compel each other to reassess their plans for the future. ". . . the extraordinary contained within the ordinary." For these two plays RBS Productions has adapted the playmaking strategies of theatre and film director Mike Leigh. The process involves developing a meticulously detailed background for each character. When the two characters are brought together, even the most commonplace of exchanges seem charged and nuanced by authentic, vivid past experience. "In this play the characters talk over the top of each other, interrupt, trail off, repeat themselves and stumble over words in a way that is closer to real speech than most scripted Drama."

Created And performed by Simon O'Conner And Barbara Power with director Richard Huber
