Stewart Laing, who directed The Maids last year on the Citizens main stage, returns with a new production of Pamela Carter’s play Slope, originally produced by Untitled Projects in 2006 and re-conceived for an intimate studio setting.

Slope explores the love affair between the 19th-century poets, Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud and its impact on Verlaine’s young wife Mathilde. Their verbal sparring is scabrous and hilarious, and their rollercoaster relationships as passionate and claustrophobic as they are cruel and ridiculous.

Unlike the original version, this production will take place in a bare, black box studio theatre, with several cameras positioned throughout the space. In partnership with KILTR, each performance will be filmed and streamed live internationally via their online portal. The play will be directed and lit as much for the cameras as for the audience, who will line the walls of the space, up close to the actors and action as it unfolds in Paris, London and Brussels.

The young cast consists of a graduate performing his first professional role (James Edwyn), an award-winning newcomer (Jessica Hardwick) and the man who played the enigmatic Paul Bright in Untitled Projects’ Paul Bright’s Confessions of a Justified Sinner (Owen Whitelaw).
