A Librarian sits in a decaying public library waiting for people to help. The books get organised, the shelves get stacked, people come and go. And then a Writer enters, with a lot of questions and a book she'd like to find a space for on the shelf.
Remains is a new play by Louris van de Geer (who has six years of first hand library experience) about who we choose to listen to and why, and how we can ever hope to be remembered in a world so overwhelmed by the noise of other people.
Currently in development

You want it?
