Pan Pan Theatre
Silence in the house, not a sound, only the fire, no flames now, embers. Embers.
Henry sits on a beach, remembering and imagining stories and incidents from his life. Tormented by his father's suicide, his own dysfunctional family history and his failure as a writer, hallucinations and reality merge as he attempts to stoke the fire of his creativity.
First broadcast on radio in 1959, Embers takes us on a journey into the haphazard world of Henry's imagination, a world of ever-shifting mental leaps, ruminations and ambiguities where creative storytelling and unfinished memories both real and unreal coalesce into one. Was Henry's father washed out to sea whilst taking his evening swim, or did he commit suicide?
We never found your body, you know ...
