“People will faint; some people can’t handle this. A Collection of Noises is an original work in the style of Grand Guignol. Can you last the journey?” - Writer/director Alexander Sparrow
A Collection of Noises is a horrific new play from writer Alexander Sparrow, who has performed at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London as a member of SGCNZ YSC 2011. Noises follows a young girl, Alice, as she attempts to navigate her troubled mind. It’s dark in there, and some thoughts just won’t leave her alone . . .
“I love horror, absurd films and cult pictures. Grand guignol (naturalistic horror), David Lynch’s surrealist film Erasherhead, and the atmosphere of black and white films inspired me to write a play exploring the atrocities in the backs of peoples’ minds,” says Sparrow. The play evokes feelings of intense claustrophobia, and exploring an introverted character alongside that fits beautifully. “It’s a one woman play, but you get to meet the monsters inside,” says actress, Alice Sherwood King.
The set for A Collection of Noises integrates perfectly with the stage of The Fringe Bar. Sticking to a black and white design and a dream world study set, the space is perfect for the nightmarish journey crowds will experience. Alice Sherwood King says, “It’s almost impossible to find the path; but stay close enough and I may get you through.”
In one terrifying play, Alice will show you what dwelling on your thoughts can really make you do. Face the monsters and find the trouble inside. Bring a friend – it’s one hell of a trip.
