Synopsis


The Point of It takes three overlooked stories by E M Forster - stories of great power and theatrical potential - and weaves them into a single drama set today and in 1912.


No-one writes better about the tragic collision of convention and desire - between the comfortable life we cling to and the violent urge to be free - but there is nothing especially Edwardian about such a conflict, so we have updated and reshaped the stories to make Forster's vision of the human spirit struggling to be free available to a new audience in a highly theatrical staging, reframing his vision in the light of contemporary gay and intersectional experience.


The Point of It will be performed by an ensemble of six, doubling and trebling roles in a style that combines physical theatre with naturalism.


Though the action covers a century and spans the globe, it takes place in a single setting, which is transformed by the actors as they go.
