Those Powerful Machines

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Arnold Thomas Fanning 

  • Synopsis

    Roddy, an Irishman, lives alone in a suburb of London in the mid 1990s, nursing his wounds and building machines for his own strange purposes. Trace, an English night-club hostess, joins him for a session of Sunday evening bondage. They are rudely interrupted by Clanger, another Irishman, agitated and disheveled, who knows too much about Roddy's past and has a demand that will jolt Roddy out of his amnesiac purgatory and bring him back shockingly into the now.
