Tomlin, L. (2012) The Pool Game. [Performance]

Full text not currently available from Enlighten.


Condemned to an absurd trial played out on a pool table, Josef K must play the game of his life. Inspired by Kafka’s The Trial, The Pool Game questions the notion of justice in a world where the rules are manipulated to make sure the winner always stays on. Darkly comic and unashamedly political The Pool Game playfully invites the audience to participate – as a jury whose ultimate verdict may change everything or nothing at all.
