The Alan Key

Written by Sammy Kissin. Performed by Judith Amsenga

The story plunged the audience into the tragi-comic reality of what it meant to be a human, searching for love and meaning in the do-it-yourself age of Ikea. Jo’s bed was falling apart. When she went to Ikea to buy a new one, it seemed her life was on the verge of doing the same. What she didn't factor was how everything was about to change.


WEEK 3

By George.

Created by Sammy Kissin and performed by  Sammy Kissin. Performed by Sammy Kissin on 15 and 18 October and Robin Steegman on 16 and 17 October

15 – 18 October

The other week a complete stranger shouted across the dock and asked “Do you own this boat?” I said “Yes”. He said “Then you must be Sammy”. He said “George, who used to fish here. He asked me to pass on a message. He wanted to say Goodbye”. The exchange was so simple. I said “Oh”. I wanted to say “Please, say bye back to George.” I’d like to say bye. This is an attempt at a reply.
