In the Solitude of Cotton Fields
by Bernard-Marie Koltès, trans. Jeffrey Wainwright
Tristan Bates Theatre, Covent Garden
Tuesday-Saturday, 8pm & Sundays 4pm
French playwright Koltès’ seminal work of modern European theatre is an extraordinary duologue between two men who meet randomly on the street and who find themselves locked in a struggle between life and death.
British director Kimberley Sykes brings a physical, dynamic new approach to the text as the tension escalates between ‘Dealer’ and ‘Client’ as they engage in a war of words, wills and desires.
