After Play With Repeats in 2005-06 and Face To The Wall in 2006-07, it is the third time Tristero stages a text by Martin Crimp. In AN® we present our version of Attempts On Her Life. This 1997 play is generally considered to be Crimp’s masterpiece.

Attempts On Her Life comprises seventeen scenes, from very short to very long, monologues and dialogues, in each of which a woman called An is involved. But who is she? Each scene sends us in a different direction: this character seems to be able to assume a great many guises. She appears to have a ‘fluid’ identity: whenever we think we have a hold on her, she slips through our fingers.
