Last Train - HowTheLightGetsIn Festival, Hay-on-Wye 31st May 2016

Last Train - a thought thriller

a play of voices by Fred Dalmasso & John Schad - based on John Schad’s 2007 book Someone Called Derrida

HowTheLightGetsIn Festival, Hay-on-Wye 31st May 2016

https://howthelightgetsin.iai.tv/events/last-train-to-oxford-2309

Someone called Jacques Derrida, the philosopher, someone called him on the phone, someone who was dead.  A mystery, he thought, a mystery that begins in 1968 when Derrida visits Oxford and there he dies, several times.  Murder, he thought. So too thought another man, an Oxonian dying of dementia in 1996.  And so we investigate, not just the Oxford of the 1960s but the Oxford of the 1930s and an English public school in the middle of the Second World War.  In the end, at the end, the question is: can one die of another's death?

‘an incredibly daring exercise in transgression’

‘Finding meaning in the otherwise meaningless is what drives the unfolding mystery. Distinct events and lives – at first seeming coincidences – become inextricably tangled and soon unignorable, like not only being able to see the face of the Man in the Moon but also being able to feel his hands around your throat.’

‘Intensely personal, innovative, and indefatigably intriguing’ (Dan Hall)

‘I felt I was in the presence of something immense’ (Freya Gallagher-Jones)

‘a deeply moving (for being playful, and restrained) search for the truth hidden in the confabulations of a memory that may not be trusted any more, an attempt to communicate with a father with whom direct communication becomes impossible, or subject to doubt’ (Gogue)

 About the book:

  • ‘an extraordinary performance’ (Sir Frank Kermode)
  • ‘caught my imagination straight away’ (Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury)
  • ‘an amazing book… one of the most original on Derrida’ (J. Hillis Miller)
  • ‘a remarkable novel’ (Ian Macmillan, on BBC Radio 3′s ‘The Verb’)
