Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead are back with the third installment of their non-linear trilogy on radical narrative. What gaping plot holes are we prepared to overlook in order to stay comfortable?

Friday 08 - Saturday 23 November, 20:00.

In the Shawshank Redemption, wrongly convicted Andy Dufresne spends years digging a tunnel to freedom from his prison cell. He hides his work under a large picture of Rita Hayworth. On the day of his escape, Andy crawls his way towards the outside world and perfectly replaces the poster on the wall to mask his escape route. We’re so emotionally satisfied when Andy rips off his prison uniform in the rain that we forget to ask how he could possibly have replaced the poster from inside the tunnel.

But how could he possibly have replaced the poster from inside the tunnel?

What holes are we prepared to overlook in order to stay comfortable?

“It’s horrible. Brilliant, scintillating, guillotine catching the sunlight as it falls dazzling, but also horrible.” - Maddy Costa on Story #1, Exeunt
