“The Door” by Damn Cheek

Two men wait in a room with only each other and a banging door for company. They exchange talk, argue and joke about politics, religion, trivia and consequences. The banging of the door provides punctuation as we begin to realise that they are not strangers; they have history.

The Door play


Two men, and a broken door that neither will close. As the door bangs, we hear accusation and excuse, and the story of a dead hero. Who is responsible?
The Door explores our justifications for action and inaction, and our refusal to accept responsibility for the consequence of unintended outcomes.

This is a pungent comment on recent wars, on the governing classes, and our own passivity in the face of failure. It’s also a fascinating journey of two men, an officer and his NCO, searching for a common understanding. Who’s going to stop that door from banging?

Written by Tony Earnshaw.
