Description

The Immortalist by Heathcote Williams.

7pm. December 9th 2016.

The Immortalist--------Jack Moylett.

The Interviewer--------Alison Mullin.

A play on the nature of time, ageing and death: a skeptical TV reporter interviews

a 278 year old man about time itself and the alternative to death. The Immortalist

argues against passivity: "people foul up because the stay in the same place. They've traded utopia for reality, they've

traded their instinct for politics. Consuming is a substitute for being. TV is a substitute for astral projection. Aeroplanes are a substitute for levitation".

Heathcote Williams: Literary wizard, best selling poet, critically acclaimed playwright, award winning author, accomplished actor and celebrated activist who pioneered the investigational prose poem and uses this medium to tackle a variety of political and environmental issues.
