GEORGE
My name is George Orwell and I am a terrible writer POLLY
As a journalist I’ve lived a very comfortable life… POLLY
…but this was already a different city. GEORGE
I hadn’t washed in three weeks… GEORGE
…and was spending days without food. POLLY
I’d travelled all across London and still was jobless. GEORGE
I can’t see a way… GEORGE
I can’t see a way out of a life like this. (Sound of typing on an old typewriter) (Sound of typing on a laptop computer) (Sound of more typing on Orwell’s typewriter) GEORGE
This is the story of my first book. GEORGE
Of how I became a writer. GEORGE
Of how I became “George Orwell”. GEORGE
This is “Down & Out In Paris and London”. (Typing on typewriter builds momentum) (Pinging sound as page is pulled from typewriter) CAPTIONED PERFORMANCE:
New Diorama Theatre, Thursday 28 April 2016.
