Gaping Hole (Story # 3)

The third installment of a non-linear trilogy on radical narrative, Gaping Hole (Story #3) promises to be just as “horrible, yet brilliant” as the first two. Puzzling over the ending of the all-time favorite Shawshank Redemption, Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead ponder over a very crucial matter: how could Andy have replaced the poster so perfectly, from inside the tunnel?

Why Watch Gaping Hole (Story #3)

As Andy struggles to get through the perfectly round tunnel he built over 19 years, all that we can feel, as the audience, is the anticipation. Will he make it? Or will he get caught, as he crawls through the sewer pipe, with miraculously no grate at the end of it? But he does make it, and the audience revels in his euphoria, cheering him on as he rips his uniform off and raises his hands to the heavens. But is this astonishing escape enough to blind the audience to some obvious plot holes the are scattered through the movie? Greg Wohead and Rachel Mars take a humorous look into this.

Rachel Mars has performed across the UK at the Royal Court Theatre, Tate Modern, Fuel Theatre and others. Her work borrows from comedy and live performances, focusing on the many social, political and cultural constructs that make people the way they are. Greg Wohead, a Texan, centers most of his work around American icons and works with a variety of media, specifically creating one-to-one pieces and audio work.

The Story

In the 1994 drama Shawshank Redemption, the most debated loophole was of the Rita Hayworth poster being perfectly replaced in Andy’s cell; especially when his best friend and confidante, Red, knew nothing about his plan to escape. In this light-hearted yet introspective play, Greg Wohead and Rachel Mars debate about whether overlooking plot holes is something that the audience is expected to do, and how many can a member of the audience cope with?
