slope



Pamela Carter


Nick Hern Books

“A cruel battle for status, order duelling with chaos, decorum with sensual pleasure” —Guardian

“Exceptional… superb… breathtakingly successful” —Scotsman

An intimate and hedonistic examination of a nineteenth-century love triangle, slope explores the affair between the poets Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud, and its impact on Verlaine’s young wife, Mathilde.

Their verbal sparring is scabrous and hilarious, and their rollercoaster relationships as passionate and claustrophobic as they are cruel and ridiculous.

Originally produced in 2006 by Untitled Projects, slope returned in a new production by the company at the Glasgow Citizens and the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh.

pamela carter is a playwright and dramaturg. Her plays include: Almost Near (Dresden Staatsshauspiel, Germany; Finborough Theatre, London); Skåne (Hampstead Theatre, London; Theater Ulm, Germany; winner of the New Writing Commission at the Berliner Festspiele Stückemarkt, 2012); What We Know (Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh; Teatro Circulo, New York); and several plays for Untitled Projects including slope, An Argument About Sex and Paul Bright’s Confessions of a Justified Sinner. She also works regularly with Swedish conceptual artists Goldin+Senneby (The Nordenskiöld Model) and Vanishing Point Theatre Co (including Interiors and Tomorrow).
