SNIPER – Doppelganger Productions

SNIPER is a twenty-minute surreal experimental drama. It concerns a nondescript man who has murdered and injured numerous people during a gun-attack on a peaceful square in a Cathedral city. The play imagines that the sniper is dead, having ‘turned the gun on myself,’ and is speaking in direct address to the audience, all of whom are also dead and who constitute the sniper’s assembled victims. Two audience members complete the three-member cast and, while acting as a chorus, also become inveigled in debate with the sniper concerning media hysteria, stereotyping and monstering, fidelity with the truth of what actually happened, the capriciousness of memory and the vagaries of verification.
