I thought ‘Preservation of Public Image’ was a fascinating stimulus in that we all find ourselves worthy of being remembered but who is actually good enough?

The play is a multi-layered scream against the void of the future as the three characters explore themselves, art, legacy and mortality. The piece ties into other values under the values diagram: wealth, power and authority are all used as building blocks by the central character in her tirade against the thought of her being forgotten.
