MIDNIGHT YOUR TIME
“I’m sure you’ll joke this is not the first one way conversation we’ve ever had…”
Every Thursday, Judy tries to talk to her daughter online. Judy calls from Islington; her daughter is in Palestine.
It's 2010 and retired lawyer Judy is stuck at home, casting around for ways to occupy herself: with a women’s peace league; with local politics; with her daughter’s life.
Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst directs Diana Quick in this smart one-woman play specially written for her by Adam Brace and featuring music by composer Isobel Waller-Bridge.
Recorded via webcam in Diana Quick’s home during the Coronavirus lockdown in April 2020, Midnight Your Time is a wryly comic and ultimately heartbreaking exploration of what it really means to communicate remotely.
Midnight Your Time premiered on the Donmar Warehouse’s YouTube Channel at 7.30pm 13 May 2020. The production is now available to watch for 7 days.
Running time: 30 minutes
An audio-descriptive introduction to the play, written and recorded by VocalEyes describer Louise Fryer is available to download in audio and word format
