The Logue of Thomas P.T. Lawrence
While living in a tiny house covered in blackberries Mr Thomas P. T. Lawrence, a fanciful writer who enjoys talking to a blackberry he has grown in a pot, receives a letter informing him that he has inherited a manor from a recently deceased uncle whom Thomas never knew existed. But when Thomas arrives at the manor there is something amiss with the servants, who appear to be in the grips of a peculiar melancholia and nostalgic ritual.
Believing that there is more than mere melancholia at work, Thomas endeavors to discover the meaning behind the madness, expounding his thoughts in a dialogue with his pot-plant bramble. After a few days in the manor Thomas makes a number of increasingly peculiar discoveries that have cataclysmic implications.
The Logue of Thomas P. T. Lawrence explores how metafiction can function in theatre, and seeks to ask how free we are in the construction of our realities, whether it be a ‘written’ reality or the one we experience day to day.
