I have written a Play.

It has a pretty epic scope, a relatively grand vision and somewhere in the region of twenty characters. It is, basically, a real humdinger.

Unfortunately though, it is a script so ambitious, so demanding, so exquisitely detailed that handing an actor this text and putting them in front of an audience is like handing a toddler a pint of coffee and putting them in front of a zipwire.

It won't end well.

So instead, I have pre-recorded each actor, in isolation, onto a separate tape, their fallibility erased with editing and their odious need for attention mitigated by the lack of audience. Leaving a litany of individual voices – each of them perfect, captured on a tape that will, when played back in precise unison, form a glorious theatrical polyphony.

The play is perfect.

The tapes are perfect.

I just need enough people to press play. That’s all.
