What is it?
A dark comedy piece about an old man who has failed in everything he has attempted in life, who decides to get his house in order before he kills himself. In doing so he finds an envelope, which contains his attempts at poetry. Through them he relives his time, the people and places he knew, the attitudes, the hopes and beliefs he once held and how his greatest love was always the city of his birth.
A piece that looks at how loving concern can turn to boiling anger and how familial empathy leads to relative resentment. Rhyme Without Reason shows how a Liverpool father and son handle the eternal question of how to deal with life’s traumas – by having a right kick off!
He still kills himself, but has a bloody good laugh before he goes…
