Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Parliament Square is an uncertain play for uncertain times. It was first staged at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester in October 2017 amidst unstable and divided years for the United Kingdom, with two general elections and the Brexit referendum. The play centers on Kat, a young woman who gets up one morning, leaves her husband and young daughter behind and travels to London to commit an extreme act of political protest. The scene excerpted here comes at the end of the first act, as Kat arrives in Parliament Square. Her dueling consciousness flits between resolve and uncertainty about the action she's about to take.
