A Step Forward is a performance that brings two plays together in one; 'A Step to the Left', performed as part of TMYT’s last June showcase “Breaking the Rules”, and 'Forward to the Right', originally performed in 1981 in Ontario One-Act Play Festival both written by Canadian writer L.A. Green.
Step to the Left
The play is both striking and peculiar and very relevant to today’s society. We live in a world where everyone is struggling with time and trying to cope with never-ending to do lists. Therefore, with such hectic lives, have we forgotten to focus on the most important basic human needs? Our human rights!
Forward to the Right: A Play of Joan of Arc
Imprisoned and later sentenced to death, Joan is left without a cross, a rosary or any religious service. The guard outside her prison cell, sympatises and arranges for her to receive the last rites. This imprisons him shortly after Joan’s death. Both characters will not gain their freedom because of the truth they strongly believe in.
Strobe lighting will be used throughout the performance.
