The Soul of Wittgenstein

  • 6 Feb 2018 — 25 Feb 2018

1941. Guy’s Hospital, London. A battered copy of War and Peace. An illiterate Cockney dying of cancer and a philosopher handing out pills. Their world is determined by these facts. But is it defined by them? Written by Ron Elisha, winner of four Australian Writers’ Guild Awards and produced by Austrian Pamela Shermann, The Soul of Wittgenstein is a pertinent, engrossing, confrontational, yet tender, new play. It asks what happens when we open up, when we put aside our differences, and when we force ourselves to feel. If a dying man questioned what you were doing with your life, how would you answer? And would it be something that you were willing to admit?
