Attempts on her Life

Playwright: Martin Crimp
Director: Matt Enos
Student Groups: Second Major


Martin Crimp's Attempts On Her Life is a rollercoaster of modern-day obsessions. In 17 scenarios for the theatre, its strange array of nameless characters attempt to invent the perfect story to encapsulate our time and identify a character for the audience. Is Anne a celebrated performance artist? Or a fugitive? A physicist? A loving mother? Or a murderer? A philanthropist? And is she dead, or alive?... Since premiering at the Royal Court Theatre in 1997, Martin Crimp's innovative Attempts On Her Life, has been translated into 20 different languages. A challenging and visceral ensemble piece of post-modernist theatre.
