  • the choreography / the movement
  • the tableaux
  • the silence (the stillness) amidst the noise
  • the stylisation: period / costume / movement et al
  • British Society - 50's - present: nothing changes!
  • the racism
  • a sense / the sense of community
  • the interlude: the dreaming
  • the bus driver
  • the working man
  • being the meat someone else's sandwich
  • what is there more?
  • Tom Brooke as Peter

Why would someone walk away from this performance and say: 'we may have enjoyed it more if we had left at the interval'?

The whole point of the piece is fully revealed during the Interlude and Part Two...
