Almost Nothing

by Marcos Barbosa, translated by Mark O'Thomas

Almost Nothing had 3 performances 11 months ago (between the 8th of October 2016 and the 18th of October 2016) at Riverside Arts Centre and Rhoda McGaw Theatre

Antonio and Sara are being playful as they prepare to go to bed, but they cannot ignore what lurks outside. In a world where a life can mean almost nothing, just how far does one have to go to keep the demons at bay?

The killing of a boy and the webs of urban violence bring together a rich couple, a woman of dubious reputation and a henchman.

The Brazilian author, Marcos Barbosa, was a resident in the Royal Court Theatre's International Residency Programme in 2002 and this play, along with 'At The Table' was produced at the RCT in London in 2004.
