Title: Fourlies
Synopsis:

Fourlies is an experimental and surrealistic theatre piece that focuses on many key issues like historical revisionism, creative freedom and character autonomy in a literary work.

What if a certain character in a story takes the liberty to re-orchestrate a story to suit one’s own ends? What if the other characters protest to this interpretation? What should the writer’s main priorities be: accuracy, artistic freedom or financial success of a book? These underlying questions combined with a constant social commentary forms the backbone of “Fourlies”. In essence, “Fourlies” is the story of four people and their follies brought to light.

Fourlies will provoke thought in the audience. Do all humans want to rewrite their past to remodel people’s perceptions of them? Can history be written the way it was or is it always subject to reinterpretations? The drama will instigate the audience to think about these issues and derive answers for themselves.
