Stephen Poliakoff 'has been one of our sharpest and least predictable writers for the past twenty years' (Daily Telegraph) In his new play, Remember This, Stephen Poliakoff looks at the insidious role that technology plays in all our lives. The video camera becomes an interruption in the daily existence of Rick and Victoria and their friends and relations as the couple prepare for their wedding, to such an extent that the video diary they are recording begins to take over their lives. If events have not been recorded they have not been lived. Their memory of events is only what exists on tape for an audience to see or hear. When the stress of modern living reaches a critical peak, Rick's forsakes real life for one totally imagined. Remembering becomes harder and harder."Stephen Poliakoff addresses the problem of the amnesia that threatens to overtake us all, as a hundred different developments - social, cultural, technological - conspire to cut us off from the past" (Sunday Telegraph); "His social observations often have a deadly accuracy" (Guardian)
