Received an email from Jorg today (sorry about the antispam measures on the forum by the way, Jorg) who writes:
"Hi all -
I am very excited to announce that REG agreed to play a new kind of part in our upcoming production of 2+2+2, the main act of AMERICAN NIGHTS at London's prestigious King's Head Theatre:
REG appears as the ominous, controlling, maddening VOICE!
AMERICAN NIGHTS at the King's Head Theatre takes a surreal and ironic look at fear, isolation and insanity in both family and society, at home and at work.
AMERICAN NIGHTS will begin with the supporting act, Christopher Durang's 'dentity crisis, followed by the European premiere of 2+2+2.
a new play by Jorg Tittel
directed by Alex Helfrecht
with Richard E. Grant as The Voice
Set against a dystopian American backdrop where everyone eats the same food, thinks the same thoughts, and sleeps only to prepare for another day of senseless labour, 2+2+2 tells the story of a man trying to break free from his inner dictator (Richard E. Grant) and find his true love.
2+2+2 takes a close look at contemporary America and its influence on the rest of the global community as a society ruled by anonymous corporations, who manufacture conformity and eradicate the individual.
It is a social satire in the spirit of Bertolt Brecht, George Orwell, Franz Kafka and Samuel Beckett.
