Philip Ridley's latest play for Soho Theatre brings his unique blend of story-telling mixed with an apocalyptic vision of a society at conflict with itself to the stage.
'Look - they're fading. Those liars. Dissolving . . . It's the end of their world . . . The birth of a new one . . . Our one . . . Our world.'
It's Mother's Day and mother is dead. Now her two sons gather in her home to argue about the truth of their childhood. But a storm is approaching . . . with a violent new truth all of its own.
This programme playtext is published to tie in with the premiere at Soho Theatre, London, on 15 May 2008.
Praise for Leaves of Glass: 'Like a shard of glass plunged straight to the heart . . . superb.' Guardian
