Almost Nothing

By Marcos Barbosa Translated by Mark O'Thomas
Published in volume Almost Nothing & At the Table

Antonio and Sara are being playful as they prepare to go to bed, but they cannot ignore what lurks outside. In a world where a life can mean almost nothing, just how far does one have to go to keep the demons at bay?

Marcos Barbosa's short play Almost Nothing was first staged, in this English translation by Mark O'Thomas, in a double bill with At the Table, at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2004.
