A hopeful young man, a teacher in love, a pregnant woman,
A fearful policeman, a boy on a mission, a pianist in the rain.
A wounded man, a grandmother…
Nine lives fractured by the events of one tragic day.
David Watson’s thrilling new play tells the story of Vincent, a man estranged from his family and adrift in London. Reunited temporarily with his lost love, he finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. As Vincent’s life changes forever, his destiny begins to affect a cast of characters across the country, from a remote house in County Down to the South Bank at sunset.
A miniature epic about love, passion and violence in contemporary Britain.
With a radical staging, and merging film and live action, Pieces of Vincent receives its world premiere in a bold new production directed by Clare Lizzimore.
A NOTE ABOUT SEATING FOR PIECES OF VINCENT:
