T5 – Simon Stephens

T5 is a monologue. It is deeply modern. The character is an adult woman whose friends would probably think she actually does ‘have it all.’ I love to see the spotlight on a woman who does not have to be an object. Yet, I’m not sure T5 escapes all of the female stereotypes as there is a touch of hysteria in her. There is an emptiness to the piece that I wanted to be intentional, an echo of the emptiness of modernity, but the text did not, ultimately, make that feel true.

Cast: 1F – 30s. Run time: Again, no clue. Up to 30 minutes. Themes: modern life, escape, having it all, isolation. Play script: Methuen Drama
