THE HOUR WE KNEW NOTHING OF EACH OTHER by Peter Handke     “An exhilarating feat of choreography and direction… and of acting, both collective and individual. And if, after we emerge into the evening light, we find ourselves seeing performance and meaning everywhere, in the coming and going of people on Grindlay Street and Festival Square, then that’s a measure of the sheer transforming power of Handke’s vision, brought to life with a rare passion and humanity by this superb creative team, including 90 citizens of Edinburgh acting out of their skins, on behalf of us all.”   *****The Scotsman    “Wilson is always one to play at the edge of what constitutes theatre and here she finds form and meaning from a script that is no more than 450 characters crossing the stage, played by a 90-strong community cast.”  ****The Stage    “This is people-watching in extremis, the visual equivalent of eavesdropping and making presumptions based on a sliver of a story. Seemingly ordinary lives take mental back-flips into fantasy realms in a way that at times is akin to Mr Benn stepping into Westworld by way of last night’s prime time news. In this sense Wilson and Parker’s rendering of Handke’s play is as much a glimpse into the collective unconscious as the outer world it drifts through using a cartoon-like array of possibilities.”  ****The Herald          Co-directed by Janice Parker & Wils Wilson  Designed by Fly Davis  Original score composed by M J McCarthy  Lighting by Kai Fischer  Assistant Directors - Eve Nichol & Drew Taylor

*****The Scotsman

“Wilson is always one to play at the edge of what constitutes theatre and here she finds form and meaning from a script that is no more than 450 characters crossing the stage, played by a 90-strong community cast.”

****The Stage

“This is people-watching in extremis, the visual equivalent of eavesdropping and making presumptions based on a sliver of a story. Seemingly ordinary lives take mental back-flips into fantasy realms in a way that at times is akin to Mr Benn stepping into Westworld by way of last night’s prime time news.
