The Low Hundreds     

he Low Hundreds is the first part of a new play which will ultimately be about a bloke who's feeling a bit under the weather, a woman who's struggling to sustain her customer base, and a scientist who can't quite believe her results. The piece as a whole is inspired by Stanley Milgram's book Obedience to Authority and the experiments it describes (see for example http://www.cll.wayne.edu/isp/mnissani/WWI/obedienc.htm ).

The Low Hundreds will also be Gary's first attempt at directing his own work. And possibly his last.

Gary's plays so far are Crazy Gary's Mobile Disco, which won the inaugural Theatre in Wales new writing award; The Shadow of a Boy, which won half of the 2002 George Devine Award; The Drowned World, which won half the 2002 Pearson Best Play Award and an entire Fringe First; and (in Welsh) Amser Canser, which won friends.

Rob Storr's plays are numberous: among them are an award-winning production of Silence by Harold Pinter at the National Student Drama Festival, and In the Country of the Blind at the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill. Last summer, he took the lead in the National Theatre production of The Shadow of a Boy. It would be hilarious to say that he hasn't worked since, but sadly not true. He's been developing new work with Paul Miller, director in residence at the National Theatre Studio.
