Station Stories

Went to see Station Stories – short plays in Picadilly station, Manchester – audience walks around in a group wearing headphones – characters come into view – but from a distance sometimes above or below or on an opposite platform –
Atmospheric – was a bit like spying on people – really liked one piece about a girl and a photo booth – at tiume you could just see her feet below the curtain and hear her voice (they were all essentially monologues)- There was only one piece – about a security guy that made you look around – and at other people in the station- which was good – the only piece that prompted curiosity about other passengers.

A couple were really just like radio pieces – you did not have to be in station for – would have liked interaction between characters – and more interaction with station or anything in it – or anyone in it – to have made it more location / time specific.
