INTERVIEW: CHRIS GOODE
Chris Goode’s roving camera monologue Men In the Cities follows an assortment of men through London on the day after Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered on the streets of Woolwich. He tells Matt Trueman about patriarchy, entrenchment, and what it means to write yourself into your own play. Recorded at the Royal Court, 23rd July 2015.
If I wanted to talk about the patriarchy, you have to talk about complicity. If you want to talk about complicity, you have to talk about entanglement. You have to talk about the way our lives are intimately connected with the lives of strangers who we’ll never meet.
