100-Word Fringe: “2401 Objects” at Pleasance Beyond

A thin film of man tears and I’ve officially encountered the 2011 “Fringe show that breaks you”. 2401 Objects tells the extraordinary story of Henry Molaison, a man who underwent the removal of his hippocampi and became the world’s most famous amnesiac. The show weaves back and forth between the days leading up to the epileptic Henry’s operation, and his later life as someone entirely unable to form new memories. Glorious full-stage projections and the cautious words of Henry’s final doctor help frame this powerful, gut-wrenching ode to anyone who’s ever lost themselves to their own mind. See it now.

2401 Objects is playing in Pleasance Beyond until August 28th.

Tickets: £10 (£9)
