About a quarter of a million people are reported missing to the police every year and out of that number, about 30,000 will involve rational decisions to walk out of one life and into another
Most of us have probably thought about it – simply walking out on our lives and never coming back: all those debts forgotten, relationship headaches dissolved, the embarrassments of a failed life wiped clean. British writer Fin Kennedy shows us just how to achieve such extreme escape from life’s problems in his tragicomic play How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found.
When a young executive reaches breaking point and decides to disappear, he pays a visit to a master of the craft in a seafront fortune teller in Southend. Haunted by visitations from a pathologist who swears he is already lying flat out on her slab, he begins a nightmarish journey to the edge of existence that sees him stripped of everything that made him who he was.
The Times describes the play as:
Before it was even produced the play won the John Whiting Award for New Writing, and both its deft characterisation and the assault on the subject of identity show it a worthy winner. The work remains fascinating from moment to moment.
