    Summary

    Geoffrey reaches for the nearest shelf, throws a conveniently placed bowl of fake fruit at Darren, and then gets to his feet and walks out of the prop closet with his lit cigarette held too-tight between his teeth as Darren yells, “You can hurl wax bananas at me all you bloody like, darling, it doesn’t change that I’m right and you know it!”

    (a few snapshots of Darren and Geoffrey: The College Years)

    Summary

    In the dressing rooms of their theatre at university—a tiny, underbudgeted, ancient little place that’s needed a renovation since the early sixties—the girls blot their lipstick on the walls. It's not sanitary, say the stage managers; it's not normal, says the audience. And there's a trail of kisses all the way from the star-bright mirrors to the sun-bright stage, and the seats are old and creaking and falling apart, and the lights burn hot enough and blazing enough to turn Darren into a pillar of salt.

    Summary

    “Fucking hell,” says Geoffrey, his feet up on the desk, “Oliver really doesn’t have any taste.”

    “Well, I don’t really see how you can object,” says Darren, careful to make sure that his voice doesn’t shake, “you’re dead.”

    In which Oliver is not the ghost, Geoffrey is not the one haunted-- and come on now, you know what they say about hauntings.

    Summary

    Oliver blinks and a truck roars past him; Geoffrey gets arrested again when the cops come after a noise complaint; Ellen goes home and cries.

    In another world, Geoffrey Tennant is a man haunted. No, wait. In another world, Geoffrey Tennant is haunted by a very specific ghost.

    This Geoffrey Tennant sticks to generalities, thanks.

    Summary

    Geoffrey Tennant made a career out of not allowing magicians to interfere with his productions. Darren Nichols, on the other hand, once turned his audience into grains of sand for a production of Beckett. The disagreement accidentally shapes their lives.

    Summary

    A year and a half in, Darren laughs in Caryl Churchill’s face and Geoffrey burns her notes in the sink of their dilapidated, shabby high rise.

    “Fucking tourist,” says Darren, with great finality, smoke drifting about his head and bruises from Geoffrey’s fingertips about his waist.

    An AU where Geoffrey never goes to New Burbage, but chooses to rip Europe apart with Darren, instead.

    Summary

    "This was a bit fucking dramatic, even for you, darling," says Darren, and Geoffrey squints at him, nastily, taps his finger on the visiting room table in a frantic litany, says, "Don't tell me: Oliver."

    "Don't tell me," says Darren, lighting a cigarette and blowing the smoke out, sardonic, "You were the play."

    Summary

    Looking back, it had to be considered that perhaps what came to be known as The Great Massacre at The Swan would not have been such an extensive, well, massacre, if the viral outbreak of living death had not coincided with Darren Nichols's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
