Anne Lennon and Vicki Liddel face each other in Gravity, a one-act play in which text and music are accorded equal weight. The Royal Shakespeare Company's writer-in-residence, Zinnie Harris, and Georgian composer Marina Adamia collaborated to create this strong piece of theatre featuring emotional rites-of-passage experiences of three main characters, a man, a woman and a child. Against a minimalist set, the actors and musicans are alternately illuminated as the script and score interweave.

Gravity, playing tonight and tomorrow at Glasgow's Tramway Theatre, is part of the Music of the Millennium series which aims to spark debate about how music has developed over the past millennium as a prelude to the Edinburgh International Festival in August. Even arts-loving students may find its abstractions a challenge.
