THE SOUL OF WITTGENSTEIN

Omnibus Theatre
Feb 2018

by Ron Elisha

If a dying man questioned what you were doing with your life, how would you answer? And would it be something that you were willing to admit?

1941. Guy’s Hospital, London. A battered copy of War and Peace, an illiterate Cockney dying of cancer, and a philosopher handing out pills. Is this all that defines them, or could they become something more? 

Written by Ron Elisha, winner of four Australian Writers’ Guild Awards, The Soul of Wittgenstein is a “perfectly paced … tragically beautiful play” (A Younger Theatre). It is simultaneously pertinent and engrossing, amusingly confrontational, yet tender. Directed by award-winning Dave Spencer, the play asks what happens when we open up, when we put aside our differences, and when we force ourselves to feel.
