2015


Written and performed by
Gus Watcham
Directed by Mark C. Hewitt
Video sequence by Abigail Norris

Bringing together new writing, performance and film,
This is always the result tells two contemporary stories of women encountering forces beyond their control ... tales of secrets, shame, love and anguish.

In
The Crush, Kathy - a woman of a certain age - faces up to the embarrassing secret obsession that has played havoc with her life.

"Sometimes I slow cook for days,
a woman walking secretly on fire …"

In
This Is always the result, chaotic violence and human frailty crash in on Sarah's ordinary life in a seaside town. "A caption trails a warning…too late, it registers in a small specific region in her brain. ‘Don’t look!’"

‘… a unique piece of work, all the more powerful for Gus Watcham's utterly convincing delivery …' (Catherine Smith)

"Directed by Mark C Hewitt,
This is always the result is a disturbing exploration into the frailty of the human mind and all its imperfections. If you ever feel like your world is falling down around you, then at least meeting Kathy and Sarah might make you feel better about yourself."
