Three extremely close friends, bereft after independent invisible losses, find themselves stuck in a non-place, consumed by the mystery of a small box that sits, waits and watches their every move from an intimidatingly centre spot. As the box begins to start strange and childhood-like dialogues with the group, they immediately delve into uncanny tangents and scenarios of their subconsciousness to figure out what this mini, meaningless object means to them as a group of friends; what exactly is shackled inside the box; and ultimately, why it contains them.
The Book of Now is a 45-minute distorted and abstract comedic-theatre piece, of sorts, focusing on the one event, where real and honest friendship is truly vital: the seemingly tortuous, noisy and repetitive, clueless and confusing phenomenon of life.
