Adam Barnard


Nick Hern Books

“Innovative... Barnard writes with a wounding intelligence” —Guardian

“Clearly influenced by Caryl Churchill… it startles, touches and wryly amuses… a neat balance of absurdity and pathos” —The Times

“An exuberant, likeable and snappy 80 minutes… has a winningly absurdist sense of humour” —Time Out

“Both wise and humorous” —Evening Standard

 

How to fill what’s left of your day. How to fill the rest of your days. Sick buckets, bucket rattling, bucket lists, buckets of love.

Wry, emotive, funny and heartfelt, buckets is a play with a unique perspective on a universal dilemma: how do you deal with the fact that time always runs out?

Across thirty-three interconnected scenes – some just a few lines, others mini-plays in their own right – buckets swings through a kaleidoscopic world of sadness and happiness, illness and health, youth and experience, kissing and crying, singing and dying.

Adam Barnard's open-ended text can be performed by any number and composition of actors.

buckets premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in May 2015.

Adam Barnard began his career as a theatre director and now increasingly writes. buckets is his first full-length play. Previous one-act plays include Closer Scrutiny (Orange Tree, 2014), I.S.S.(Y) (Wilderness Festival, 2013) and Too Small To Be A Planet (Company of Angels / Latitude, 2012). Invisible, a play for young performers, is produced by Theatre Royal Plymouth in July 2015. As a director, he has worked extensively at the Orange Tree (starting as a trainee director, 2003-4), and at Trafalgar Studios, the Finborough, Arcola, King’s Head, Salisbury Playhouse, Stephen Joseph Theatre, Lichfield Garrick, Edinburgh Fringe, HighTide and in Copenhagen and Vienna. Until 2013 he was joint director of Company of Angels, where he created the new writing programme The Commissioners and the digital theatre programme Virtual Empty Space, and wrote and directed four short films. Previously he was founding artistic director of Activated Image. He also works sporadically as a newspaper journalist.
