Writer/director Darren O'Donnell is known for his angry, hilarious, bizarre, intellectually challenging and theatrically rich presentations like Who Shot Jacques Lacan?, Boxhead and the award-winning White Mice. His newplay, pppeeeaaaccceee, opened in January as a part of the Six Stages International Festival, and will be remounted at Theatre Passe Muraille in fall 2004. It is a vast and mesmerizing glide through Life and Power. The play is set in Ephemeral; three people firmly floating chat - in O'Donnell's inimitable style - about the revolution. Which revolution? Good question. A gently aggressive meditation, pppeeeaaaccceee examines our being, asks us what we're doing and reminds us that there are monsters in here. With numerous photos and with contributions by the actors, technical staff and producer, pppeeeaaaccceee is more than just a play script - it is a document of the process of creating such a remarkable piece of alternative drama. This edition also contains O'Donnell's manifesto on theatre. Peace. Say it slow, stretch it out, make it last forever.
