Quote of the day: “I once saw an elderly man looking at a swing-bin in a hardware shop; it looked like he’d never bought a swing-bin in his life, someone else had always bought the swing-bin but that someone else wasn’t there any more. He had to buy the swing-bin. The play is kind of about that. And shoes. It’s also about shoes.” – Ian Kershaw’s ‘Author’s Note’ to his The Greatest Play in the History of the World
