What will Tom’s plan be, when his number’s up, in a room, with George – a man on the edge? Has he left a corpse, as required by crime boss, Leske, or merely an unconscious body? Will he drug his victim, thus emulating the method of the late Bobby Shuttleworth, and risk his life in doing so; or will he kill one more time in order to be free? (View Promo)
Leske’s Method was long-listed by the Papatango Playwriting Award – an initiative of the Southwark Playhouse – in 2017. Claire Nicholls and Alex Cooper achieve a rare theatrical, literary, and linguistic feat with this notoriously challenging work of tempo and recursion.
‘Nicholls and Cooper bring a Mametian masterclass – enabled through a fourteen week rehearsal process.’
Leske’s Method is a brutally physical, ‘London standard’ play in Melbourne’s newest theatre venue, involving two hit-men, a chair, a phone, a knife, a bag… and a lot of heart.
Leske’s Method is an old-school dramatic situation, in which the characters’ need to be present collides with their need to be absent; and you lean in, listen, and wonder at what is not immediately clear.
‘The strongest new writing on the Melbourne stage.’ Sarah Wallace – The Plus Ones.

His work has been shortlisted, long-listed, and staged by UK theatres; including The Bush, The Southwark Playhouse, and the Tristan Bates Theatre.
