The Machine: Third Angel Theatre

Third Angel return to the Crucible Studio with an in–the–round theatre production of Georges Perec’s innovative and mischievous 1968 radio play, the first ever production of this remarkable piece in English.

The Machine is a subtle comedy about language, meaning, thought and silence, explored through the deconstruction of Goethe’s poem The Ramblers Lullaby II. An inventive, irreverent and intoxicating linguistic dissection of the poem, the play uses computer programming protocols, randomisation, Beckett, algebra, French, proverbs, Italian, Lewis Caroll, geography, biography, Nietzsche, Napoleon, Schopenhauer, Verlain, Schiller, Rimbaud, Brecht, Dickenson, Neruda, Borges, German, Kirkegaard and KFC to achieve its goal.
