StyleA sort of triptych for the stage. Three linked short plays, with minimal sets - essentially three stage blocks and a few props.
SynopsisThe story goes that Ernest Hemingway was challenged to write a novel in six words. His response was 'For sale - baby shoes, never worn.' Damian Trasler takes each part of that phrase as the starting point of a short play - three stories in the life of a young couple, not necessarily going in the direction you might expect.
