Directors are either ar$%holes or pains in the ar$% and Wilson Speculum is both. He’s also the most talented, brilliant and successful Avant Garde Theatre Director to have ever graced the planet but now Speculum’s days are numbered.
As he gets to the end of the longest technical rehearsal ever, the 48 hour long ‘Silence’ (a co-production with every major theatre and festival in the world) - Speculum's life is in grave danger.
To celebrate his return to the stage after 16 years, David presents the 'Paradiso' section of his Divine Comedy Trilogy. Developed during lockdown in conversation with Director's Mike Alfreds, Tom Morris and Julian Crouch.
'Boredom' was Hell.
'Mortgage' was Purgatory.
But 'Silence' is Paradise.
A two-hander with David Glass and Briony O'Callaghan.
Most recently developed with Theatre Royal Winchester, Autumn 2021. To be further developed in 2023.
