All Fall; All Falling

An amnesiac is being interrogated. He knows nothing, not his name or address, not even his favourite colour. He was found near a woman’s body; did he kill her? He doesn’t know. Clearly, the interrogation has gone on for months and will do so for as long as necessary. There is no law to protect him here. His universe consists of him and his interrogator, plus an off-stage voice which may or may not be real.

This is part of a series of eight plays being presented under the title of All Fall; All Falling. The others are Collision, Liar, Evasion, Not Me, Whispers, Wardrobe and Grace. In these plays the writer takes his characters out of their lives where they were mechanics, florists, bar staff, spin doctors, thugs, teachers and musicians and puts the pressure on. The plays are interlinked but each play stands alone and its interpretation is up to the audience.

Fallen is a gripping, well-acted short play. The audience immediately feels involved and cares about the fate of the amnesiac. This is a brave venture on the part of Theatre Underground: Scotland and, judging by this play, well worth supporting.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
