After a successful run of The Last Class: A Jazzercise Play at Theaterlab last year, Hotel New Work welcomes DODO as they begin crafting their latest work.
Devised by DODO and written by Joshua Conkel, Trenches is an experimental comedy that explores the nature of grief and how it is exploited by those seeking power. It is a gonzo gothic period piece. A pastiche that plays with the hilarious, painstaking mourning practices of the Victorian era, mixed with the spiritualist movement, young women’s diary entries, and the music of Purcell. The play is also written to be performed by practical lights and with live foley art, which gives it the air of an off-kilter ghost story.
