David Edgar’s one-person show relates the events of 1968 to the turmoil of today.
Warwick Arts Centre and China Plate present
Trying It On
Written and performed by David Edgar
Directed by Christopher Haydon
It’s 1968. David is 20. It is the height of the worldwide student revolt. The Vietnam war rages. Enoch Powell delivers his 'Rivers of Blood' speech. Martin Luther King is assassinated. These events will define David’s politics and give focus to his writing.
It’s 50 years on. The 70-year-old is confronted by the 20-year old. Do they share the same beliefs? If not, is it the world that’s changed, or him?
David Edgar’s plays have been performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and all over the world. Trying it On (directed by Christopher Haydon) marks his professional debut as a performer.
