THE CUT Rehearsal Diaries: Henry St Leger-Davey, Director


the cut is about to take place

it was ‘next please’

and i heard only one sound

a muffled meeting of what resistance


out slunk the sharps

teething still from the blackplaque tune

of their to-and-fro chew


tracing each lobe in turn like vinyl,

making some obstinate

refrain until the record breaks

leaving the old thoughts still



the look on the face

something not quite a look

or quite a face but

‘next please’

‘The Cut’ by Mark Ravenhill opens in Corpus Playroom next week. Book your tickets here.
