Unsettling Stones

This play is a product of an unsettled time and of unsettled souls, and is also a contemplation of that unsettledness. Itlooksat what it means to live in a society under the rule of law, where the notions of safety/ danger/ security/ freedom are all meshed together. Where media wears masks to entertain their audience and the monopoly of power gets passed on to successive generations of the privileged elite. Unease has led to further unease and we all live in varying levels of panic and fear. In these times of powerless and impotence, can one turn to stonesfor hope?
