A rare chance to see a revival of Martin Crimp’s sublime trilogy of playlets, Fewer Emergencies, presents itself at the Print Room. First staged in 2005, this innovative and experimental work is now directed by the up-and-coming Dan Ayling as part of the Devils Festival. I recently re-read Fewer Emergencies and the brilliant thing about Crimp’s writing is that, as the years pass, it becomes increasingly relevant as a way of looking at our troubled world. If all good art aspires, in some manner, to the sublime, then you need look no further…
