AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Ann is the central (and only) character. She lives alone in a block of flats but observes her neighbours through her apartment window and satisfies her sense of human contact through the minimal daily interactions she has with them. Ann's addicted to watching her neighbours' lives. She has a job in a nearby chocolate factory, but her real work takes place through the window of her flat. When a new tenant with a little girl moves in, Ann is buzzed. The man denies the presence of his daughter and Ann becomes more involved than she means to. A dark fuzz keeps blurring her vision, which is rapidly deteriorating. Are her eyes just playing tricks or is an actual wrong being done across the way?
Think Rear Window with Jimmy Stewart flying solo and optically impaired instead of held back by a broken leg.' Source: http://venue505.com/theatre (Sighted 26/10/2012).
