A Severed Head by Iris Murdoch
3M & 3F
Iris Murdoch's seminal, and hexagonal, love/lust story. A riotous read with unforgettable characters and encounters.
This adaptation requires fleeted feet and six pence turns, with its scenes tumbling or blinking into the next. Written for a spare staging with one key artefact to represent each location – an incense stick in holder, a clay head, a Japanese print. What you will.
