Right Now

Chris Campbell, Catherine-Anne Toupin

PaperBack (18 Feb 2016)

An unsettling folktale for a modern age, Right Now explores the darker recesses of the human ability to normalise our traumas.

Right Now by Catherine-Anne Toupin, translated by Christopher Campbell is about Alice. Bereft, a mother without her child. Haunted by the cries of her first-born, whilst dealing with the nosy neighbours next door, Alice struggles to keep a grasp on what’s left of her shattered reality. Right Now is a richly drawn portrait of a family coming to terms with their unremitting grief.

'It's an all-too-rare theatrical experience to realise that you don't know where a drama is heading and to remain surprised until the very end... reality and fantasy starts to bleed together so convincingly that we don't know where one stops and the other starts... this is one of the classiest fringe offerings going.' Evening Standard

'Toupin creates a comic world of unease that is disturbingly erotic at times, scary at others... and the ending means the puzzling goes on long after the play is over.' Sunday Times

'[Chistopher Campbell]'s version of the text is immediate whilst also retaining all of the play's wobbly otherness. As a piece of writing, it's pure, weird beauty.' Time Out London
