Written by Nina Rapi

Directed by Anastasia Revi

Splinters are the small pieces of wood that penetrate the skin, or the frag- ments of a shattered impression. 7 short stories that together synthesise an ensemble, a play about human relationships. 7 dialogues among friends, lovers, family members
or internal, self-dialogues, that bring to light the never-ending quest for happiness, freedom, self-conscience and identity through our day to day interactions. The struggle between solitude and co-existence, between the self and the other.


Nina Rapi uses a simple but dense, full of substance theatric language and manages through the banality of everyday life stories to pose eternal existential and philosophical ques- tions. The text, like splinters, quietly and subtly drills through to reach some deeper, inner thoughts, to arouse and to -an extent- annoy, reminding us the ephemeral of our being and the contradictions in our human, social nature.

"SPLINTERS" played at the Simpkins Lee Theatre, Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford,

31 May - 2 June, 2018.
