A Part and Apart of ‘Me’: A Solo Autobiographical Theatre Piece by Jason Burns

posted in: General | 0

Performed on 11 July 2015 at Nearly Real Theatre Festival 2015

Video by Emma Goude, Green Lane Films

Directed by Mo Cohen, who writes:

One of my favourite moments (there were many) from the 2015 Solo festival was in the conversation following Jason Burns’ show, when Mark Drummond acknowledged Jason for “bringing dignity to co-dependence”.

That’s the kind of message we can explore together as a community that doesn’t surface very often and can really make a difference.

Indeed Jason’s entire show celebrated our human capacity to triumph over adversity, showing that our future does not have to be predicted by our past; declaring that at every given moment we have the power to say “This is not how the story is going to end.” (Thanks Jenny!)

Wow. Wow wow wow wow wow!!!!! THAT was Utterly utterly utterly EXCEPTIONAL. 100% truthful and Exceptional well written and played. I was absolutely Gobsmacked you remembered and portrayed details that I had forgotten about. The first thing that came to mind was that you looked like a famous actor. Whose face i can see but can’t remember his ruddy name. If you ever consider acting (which i have actually considered as well) you Should. You would be Brilliant!!! I am sorry i did not make it on the day. Oh, and by the way some of your dates tie in with major events in my life as well. Interesting!!! I’m surprised you didn’t include more about Gran but i guess you had your reasons not to. I give you Full permission to both add this to the website to endorse the play and to let people know that Everything that you stated was 100% Accurate and True. Very very good. When is part 3&4?!!!

His eldest brother, Neil, the oldest of the 4 in total.
