Galleon Theatre Group
Written By: DAWSON NICOLS
Directed By: KYM CLAYTON
Gary and Sandy are two writers who come from different backgrounds: he writes documentation for a computer firm and she writes copy for an advertising company; he’s bombastic and abrasive in his style, and she is more concerned with motivation than action. These two very different writers are collaborating on a writing project for a fiction class. How hard could it be?
They take turns steering the action, and the plot surprisingly twists as the characters Steve and Gab develop a life of their own and in turn influence the writers. The characters eventually talk back to their creators and take control of their own lives and their creators. As Sandy remarks: “Author voice and character voice merge all the time.”
The title of Escher's Hands refers to artist M.C. Escher's famous sketch “Drawing Hands” in which two hands, each holding a pencil, draw the other. Which hand is drawing and which is being drawn? Where is the beginning and where is end? Where are the connections? Who is in control? Who's making the rules? Playwright Dawson Nichols takes an unforgiving look at the writing process and how the writer and the writing fit together.
