“What am I sorry about? Well I guess I’m most sorry that you’re all such perverts”
Annabel wakes up with a mouth full of half eaten dumplings. She stumbles the short distance from her bed to the floor and opens her laptop. She’s certain there was something she was meant to be doing. Finding a job? Apologising for something? It doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Only the video. If she could just show you the octopus, if you could just see it for yourself, then you’d understand.
Gabriel Jones returns to the Kings Head Theatre with a new play, starring Anna Chessher of Warhorse. The Octopus is a dark comedy about a woman whose bizarre obsession will consume her life.
