Flash Sale! Gaping Hole (Story #3) at Ovalhouse!

Gaping Hole (Story #3) | Ovalhouse | 12, 15-17, 19-23 November | 8pm | £16

Cult theatremakers Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead follow up their previous Ovalhouse hit Story #1 with Gaping Hole (Story #3), the third part in their non-linear trilogy about radical narrative. Gaping Hole is part of the #DemolitionParty season and as it’s the last ever show in the Ovalhouse Upstairs Theatre, Greg and Rachel have been given full licence to f*ck the space up in the name of art!

Everyday news has been imitating art—what with photoshopped dogs and no one dead in a ditch despite their promises. So I think we can afford not to be on the nose in the material—there’s no need to show everyone politics. The job is about continuing to insist on other stories.

Greg and Rachel on being reckless and radical, but not obvious
Flash Sale! Gaping Hole (Story #3) at Ovalhouse! 1

One for film fans and anyone who ever got to the end of a story and said “But wait…” In the Shawshank Redemption, wrongly convicted Andy Dufresne spends years digging a tunnel to freedom from his prison cell. He hides his work under a large picture of Rita Hayworth. On the day of his escape, Andy crawls his way towards the outside world and perfectly replaces the poster on the wall to mask his escape route. We’re so emotionally satisfied when Andy rips off his prison uniform in the rain that we forget to ask how he could possibly have replaced the poster from inside the tunnel.

But how could he possibly have replaced the poster from inside the tunnel? What holes are we prepared to overlook in order to stay comfortable?
