AFDM (Another f****** Dear Masato)

AFDM (Another f****** Dear Masato)

Some advice, or information (but not rules):

NOT A PLAY

This is not a play. It is a piece of writing. However this piece of writing might resemble a play. The writing was not written, it was spoken. It is the record of an exchange between Sophie Perillo and Cara Best.

ACTS

The writing is made from four Acts. These Acts could also be called vignettes or non-sequiturs. The performance of the Acts requires 2 Actors. There is a Chorus, which is additional.

LOGIC & STRUCTURE

Room B6.27 is the stage. Building B, Level 6 contains a loop. This loop is a structure with its own logic.

DURATION

The play will be performed at Monash over 2 hours. There will be a beginning, middle and an end, but in no particular order.

*Special thanks to Sam George, Makiko Yamamoto and Kalinda Vary and the amazing Cara Best & Sophie Perillo, who wrote and performed this iteration. The script can be found here. x
