At the height of a bloody, seemingly endless civil war, three prisoners are delivered their final sentences. Once dawn breaks, they are to be executed.
Isolated in a cell, they try to come to grips with their own mortality, floating between waves of absurdity and insanity, denial and acceptance.
Taking inspiration from existentialist philosophy and literature, like J. P. Sartre’s and C. P. Cavafy’s work, Wall(s) is the story of a lost humanity; when faced with the inevitable end, what is there left to live for?
Bristol Drama Society presents their most recent play, Wall(s), directed by Yannis Megalou and Joe Hayward.
