In the course of these nocturnal journeys, she witnesses a paradigmatic range of incidents reflecting todays society: the kindness and the violence, the glut of discarded rubbish and the sanctity of that which is carefully preserved, as well as the ghostly vestiges of the past.My City contains all the hallmarks of Poliakoffs best writing: high in style and sustained mood, the play tells stories of the past with melodic descriptions, cinematic scope and aesthetic preciseness.
