Quote of the day: “Then I saw it. Up there. It looked like a hole in the sky. But then I realised it was moving. It wasn’t a hole at all. It was a thing. An object. A gleaming, dark, silent object. Just hovering up there. And it was huge. The size of… oh, three or four tower blocks. It was jet black and gleaming. It wasn’t making any noise. And somehow I knew… knew the object’s sole function was to be jet black and gleaming. There was no other meaning. And… it felt so… so peaceful to realise this and just… just stare into that… gleaming dark.” (Dom quoted by Philip Ridley in his new ‘Introduction’ to his Plays One)
