A MATTER OF TIME
‘A Matter of Time’ is a four-piece, narrative-driven, existentially-devastating spoken word show, crammed with energy, poignancy and time travel. It takes you through a lifetime- and then a life again, as the protagonist is thrust back into time to revisit every mistake made and every euphoric moment lived through. Four different voices represent the four different ages we see them experience. First in a linear order, but as we return to the past in a collective bickering over the live lived, each from the perspective their own experience gives them. The show asks difficult questions on responsibility and choice, and deals with themes of love, time and climate change.
A Matter of Time was the first longform collaborative project of Ross McFarlane, Ellen Renton, Shannon O"Neill and Bibi June. The show was created during the first half of 2017 and premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. It had a successful week-long run at the Banshee Labyrinth as part of the Free Fringe. AMoT was performed as part of the 2018 Hidden Door festival in the Leith State Cinema.
