ear for an eye is a potent cry against our attempts at change. It examines the limitations of progress in a call to arms against institutionalised racism: “Change don't give-a-fuck change gone do its thing with or without you.”
With a BAFTA, and Olivier and a formidable reputation for story-telling, tucker green is known for marrying big, uncomfortable ideas with poetic, boundary-breaking forms.
nut (National Theatre 2012) prompted comparisons with the late Sarah Kane, while hang (Royal Court 2015) was an inky, stark and deliberatly oblique exploration of the justice system. tucker green was last at the Royal Court with archly honest and fiercely experimental a profoundly affectionate, passionate devotion to someone (-noun) in 2017.
The combination of tucker green's formal boundary-breaking and the all too timely subject matter is set to make ear for an eye a powerful watch.
