See award winning film at the Merlin Theatre

There’s a chance to see an award-winning short film, written and directed by Merlin associate artist, Mark McGann, and starring his brother Paul, on Wednesday 7th November at 7.30 pm.

A man sits alone in a café, locked in a dark world of loss and profound loneliness. The first tentative kiss of two young lovers suddenly seizes his attention and he is fixated, unable to quite believe what he is seeing with his own eyes! Is that… could it be…? Or is he just being taunted and tortured once more by a mind cut adrift in a raging storm? How will he find the strength to carry on before he’s lost forever? 

Perplexed Music is the story of a man who battles for mental stability in a terrifying new world. His search for understanding and a reason to continue takes him to the very edge of his own mortality, before the natural process of grief finally reveals the answers he seeks in the universal truths present in everything touched by the cycle of life.

 Perplexed Music is inspired by the Elizabeth Barrett Browning Petrarchan sonnet of the same name and includes an original soundtrack written by Mark McGann and performed with a haunting beauty by Stephanie Grace Kennedy. 

A talk by Mark follows the film (running time 20 mins film, one hour talk). All tickets £10.50.
