How can you put a whole life on stage?
It begins simply enough, mapping the twists and turns of one man’s unremarkable life. But the course he has charted is not the one that unfolds, and he ends up in places – some quite dark – that were never part of his plan. The fortunes, mishaps, and joys of his years provide a life-long reminder that happiness and comfort can be found in the seemingly insignificant. That the unremarkable can in fact grow to something rich and rare.
Written by multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer, Twelve Time He Spoke follows the journey of one man’s life reflected a selection of speeches and intimate moments in which one man chooses, or is chosen, to speak before a gathered group of others: his classmates, his teammates, friends, colleagues and strangers. The audience bears witness to his life in moments as he puts himself “on the public record”, to say the things that need to be said.
