Failure Studies

Failure Studies is a new short play by Marco Biasioli. 'Failure Studies' is the name of the academic journal where Marc, Babe and George all work. In its office, these three individuals explore the nuances of failure in relation to their lives and humanity as a whole. What does failure mean? Do we learn from our failing? Do we fail 'better', as Samuel Beckett famously said? Well...we shall see.

The play was previewed at The Manchester Forum 2019  on the 28th November, 2019. In this preview, the role of Marc was performed by David Allen, Babe by Francesca Maria Izzo and George by Luke Richards. See GALLERY for more pictures.


Duration: 45 minutes

"Marx himself would no doubt have agreed that alienation is best understood via a man impersonating a chicken."

Dave Bainbridge, Philosopher & Musician

"It was really funny, it was very weird, kinda loud and energetic and it contained the very finest extended chicken impression by one man that I think I've ever seen."

David Hartley, Writer & Academic
