I’m playing a Martian Jimmy Stewart on a quest to understand love. You’re the audience playing the planet Earth entirely from a sitting position with drink in hand (if you like). This is a piece of pop-up playful storytelling with an impossible sound system. It’s played theatres, living rooms, lecture theatres, pubs, and parks: across the planet Earth. It’s about the imperial unit of measurement of human feeling, a man who falls to Earth, and at least three other improbable things. And there’s the odd joke.

This is a play with a very long title. It’s all about love, and what it might possibly mean to a martian anthropologist who might possibly be Jimmy Stewart. It’s a straight story, but there’s something else going on too. It was originally devised and performed with the brilliant sound artist Nick Ryan, but he won’t mind me saying that I’ve replaced him with quite possibly the best sound system ever. Jimmy Stewart… was developed with the support of Battersea Arts Centre, where it ran over Christmas 2011. Thanks to Nick, all but especially Richard Dufty at BAC, Chris Goode who was an outside eye and ear in the first stage, Tracky Crombie, Katerina Kokkinos-Kennedy, Annette Mees, Rachel Parish, Andy Smith, Maia Tarrell, and everyone who has ever hosted it.

It’s played a number of places, but I really like performing it in as informal a setting as possible. A piece of it was even been done at a wedding.

Randall Brammer is an actor, deviser and newly tried producer. He was blessed to see Tassos Stevens perform his/this beautiful piece at the Battersea Arts Centre in London back in 2011, and is very thankful to be a part of the new leg of this piece's journey.
