Ignite Theatre presents Ella Hickson’s ‘Eight’; a series of eight monologues with tragic and comical insight. Beautifully written and skill-fully directed the talented cast embody the life of individuals trapped by a world of excess. Each character, from a different walk of life share how the pervasive apathy of modernity impacts their life. Ella Hickson’s play interprets the present generation; living in a consumerist world of plenty and a shared loss of enthusiasm and belief, trapped in a world of excess.
Debuting in Edinburgh in 2008 amidst the financial crash, the loss of identity remains a powerful message today as we remain in crisis. This award script illuminates that the current cycle we are living through is comparable to the “lost generation” of the 1920’s when communities experienced disillusionment after the war. Following the pandemic and ongoing wars, we too, share an uncertainty about the future.
