Elvis Hates Me!
This article is from 2008.
Philip Stokes' play is set in a mental health ward where two patients believing they are Elvis Presley, are cared for by a disturbed nurse. The piece follows the nurse's fantasy about what she could have been and the world of celebrities. The cast not only provokes laughter, tears and shock, but also explores the current frenzy for celebrities. The simple staging pushes the actors to dominate the stage and keeps the full attention of the spectators.
