Jeff Koons

Directed by Gordon Anderson

Described as the Irvine Welsh of the new generation of German "pop" writers, Rainald Goetz's Jeff Koons is a wonderfully playful collage of overheard conversations, drunken exchanges, post coital ramblings, monologues by tramps and idle chit-chat at art gallery openings. The American kitsch artist Jeff Koons doesn't feature in the play but his witty spirit infuses it.

Set against the background of Becs Andrews award-winning design five characters move from the nightclub, to the bedroom, to the artist's studio, to the street and beyond, exploring how we attempt to make connections, whether through sex or love, art or commerce, noise or silence or whatever.
