WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A young man, lying asleep on a deserted beach, is woken up by another young man who has lost his bearings and needs help in discovering where he is. After beginning to question each other it quickly becomes clear that neither of them have any idea of who they are or where they find themselves. But did they perhaps know each other well a long time ago? Nicholas de Jongh's Magic Realist play Pricked Out delves into time past to pose questions about the one sensational love affair of William Shakespeare's life.
