The One You Love
Premiered at the Royal Court London in 1994, The One You Love also had a rehearsed reading at the Barracke Theatre in Berlin, directed by Thomas Ostermeier, and was subsequently given a full production there by the MannerEnsemble
“Your stomach is so precious. I love damaging it. Even on the outside it looks delicate. White skin. Like a child’s. Milky bag holding in your entrails; a poem wrapped round an explosion. What’s it like inside? It’s so vulnerable. But you’ll let me pummel you. You’ll yield and take it. I don’t want to lose you.”
It’s about wanting it, dying for it, getting it, living with it.
