About this deal

Benim kişiliğimi bir yönü var-kişiliğimin bağımlı hale gelen kısmı. Kendimi, başkalarıyla olan ilişkilerim bağlamında tanımlama eğilimim var. Anlıyorsun ya, kendimi tanımlayamıyorum. Bu yüzden, bundan kaçınmak için, kendimi tanımaktan kaçınmak için, başkalarına bağlanıyorum. Ki bu potansiyel olarak oldukça yıkıcı. Benim için yıkıcı" Ravenhill kritizuje krutosť systému, nastavuje zrkadlo konzumnej spoločnosti - robí presne to, čo si predstavíte v modernej literatúre, keď sa povie, že autor je rebel, anarchista a chce šokovať všetko a všetkých. Možno by som označila Ravenhilla za divadelného Palahniuka - lebo nikto iný, kto kritizuje spoločnosť s drsným humorom a jeho scenérie sú temné, chladné a až tak nepríjemne známe, mi momentálne nenapadá.

S odstupom času som ju však nevedela dostať z hlavy a vtedy mi došlo, že som asi zošalela, lebo v živote potrebujem viac jeho tvorby.May 2013 – The Victoria, Swindon. Directed by Peter Hynds and Sarah Lewis. Produced by TS Theatre Productions. This production starred Ella Thomas as Lulu, David Paris Malham as Robbie, Pete Hynds as Mark, David John Phillips as Gary and Howard Trigg as Brian. Po jeho dráme Faust (is dead) som k nemu pociťovala určitý odpor - je to tenučká kniha, no trpela som pri nej. On the other hand, The New York Times favors the ‘it doesn’t exist’ formula. It has prudishly renamed the play Shopping and …. Everyone does it, no one will name it! The Times doesn’t even give it an asterisk or two. Three little dots must suffice. “How was it for you, my darling?”“That was the greatest three little dots I ever had in my life!”

LH: It’s important to see the play in the context of all the fantastic new work that was coming out in the Nineties from people like Mark, Sarah Kane, Joe Penhall and Martin McDonagh. It was an extraordinarily fertile time for playwriting – and the audiences for these writers were very young, or at least becoming much more mixed. Pretty regular. The important thing for me right now, for my needs, is that this doesn’t actually mean anything, you know? Which is why I wanted something that was a transaction. Because I thought if I pay then it won’t mean anything. Do you think that’s right – in your experience?”MSC: I think the play will still be seen as quite abrasive. I’ve seen a number of things recently which are soft as butter and without any political relevance but have been hailed critically. We’re approaching a cycle of self-centred plays and I think this was a corrective then and is now to that. Consumerism is set to be the invisible power which makes the world go round and money is its fuel. As a result, all moral codes and ethical values are being obliterated. Love, intimacy, beauty the most sacred virtues are denied and replaced by the mere lust for money and power. The pursuit of happiness is transformed into the pursuit of cash. In scene fourteen, Brian remembers a story from his childhood when his father had asked him what the first words in the Bible were. He recounts his father telling him “Son, the first few words in the Bible are… get the money first. Get. The Money. First.” But this new title, Shopping and Carnal Intercourse , doesn’t quite do it, either. I prefer what The Times calls “the gerund that completes the title.” Suggestive word, gerund . No one knows what it means, but it sounds dirty. Shopping and Gerund . There you are! It works! As does, gerunding . I was reminded of something someone once said to me: capitalism needs shame in the same way that politics needs fear. It made me think about the primal, human need to be part of the tribe. Shame is the fear that you’re not worthy of love and connection. Capitalism is preying on that idea – buy this and you’ll feel good, wear this and you’ll feel good. It fuels that sense of shame that we’re not already enough. It’s so dangerous on a worldwide level. Postavy majú veľkú sexuálnu slobodu, filozofia ich života sa krúti okolo sexu, lásky, drog, okolo slobody a peňazí, sú poznačené kapitalizmom a chcú stále viac a viac.

Alphabetically, this production starred Alex Arnold as Robbie, Ashley McGuire as Brian, David Moorst as Gary, Sam Spruell as Mark and Sophie Wu as Lulu.

February 1998 – 17 March 1998 – New York Theatre Workshop. Directed by Gemma Bodinetz and Max Stafford-Clark. Torquil Campbell as Gary, Philip Seymour Hoffman as Mark, Jennifer Dundas Lowe as Lulu, Matthew Sussman as Brian and Justin Theroux as Robbie. [2] [3] [4] Ve sanırım uzun zaman önce büyük öyküler vardı. Öyle büyük öykülerdi ki, tüm hayatını onlarla geçirebiliyordun. Tanrının ve Kaderin Güçlü Elleri. Aydınlanmaya yapılan yolculuk. Sosyalizm Yürüyüşü. Ama hepsi öldü ya da dünya yaşlandı, bunadı ve tüm bunları unuttu. O yüzden şimdi hepimiz kendi öykülerimizi uyduruyoruz. Küçük öyküler. Farklı şekillerde. Ama her birimizin bir tane var. In Ravenhill’s view, in a modern retail economy characterised by dispersal, there is no more factory floor where workers can find common cause. Instead, we find in his plays a concern for ‘micro-politics’, the finite local struggles championed by the French thinker Michel Foucault, who appears thinly disguised as Alain in Faust is Dead, waxing philosophical in the desert outside Los Angeles. In Handbag, meanwhile, the plot centres on the politics of fertility and care, as two couples, one gay, and the other lesbian, attempt to conceive and then care for a child. The baby, through the neglect of child-minders, dies. The play therefore acts out a common anxiety fantasy of affluent parents while pointing out the exploitation of inexperienced carers who bear the burden of nurturing the offspring of the wealthy. Handbag interweaves this modern tale with an imaginative prehistory of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, taking the perspective of the exploited Miss Prism, who was also a failed child-minder in her time.

I first heard of Mark Ravenhill through his Guardian columns. I knew him more as a cultural figure before I read his plays. Watching the Lyric’s revival, I had similar feelings to going to see their production of Edward Bond’s Saved, another controversial play that comes with its own myths attached. Sensing Others through Dancing Bodies as Data: Review of Sense Datum by UBIN DANCE 26th November 2023

Playwright Mark Ravenhill was educated at Bristol University where he studied English and Drama, and worked for the Soho Poly in London.

2000 AD

This 20th-anniversary revival — all glorious flash, videos and music — works hard to distract us from the fact that the play is an old-fashioned flat-share drama featuring a group of friends, all of whom have been named after members of the 1990s Cool Brit boy band Take That. So there’s the idealistic stoner Robbie, the junkie Mark and the ever-enterprising Lulu. The plot shows how, in a series of rapid scenes, their attempts at self-improvement come under threat. Mark books into a clinic to cure his addiction, but is thrown out. On the streets, he finds Gary, a teenage rentboy. Meanwhile, Lulu’s attempt to get a job involves stripping off for middle-aged Brian, who tests her by giving her a bag of Ecstasy to sell. Cue dance scenes. And then some telephone sex. The story climaxes when Mark brings the damaged and self-destructive Gary home to meet Lulu and Robbie. Každopádne - Ravenhill je pre mňa cool dramatik (to je teraz vtip, lebo on a Sarah Kane sú priekopníkmi písania drámy, kt. sa volá cool dráma hehe) It tells the story of Gary (Antony Ryding), a 14 year-old rent boy who ran away from home after being repeatedly raped by his step father. However it seems this experience with his step father has effected him so bad that he finds he needs hard sex and to be dominated to get pleasure. He befriends a punter called Mark ( James Kennedy).
