A Medium-Sized Battery

“Pack the planets neatly away into a box full of asteroids, black holes, and stars… and plug the box into a medium-sized battery to keep it running.”

A MEDIUM-SIZED BATTERY (written & directed by Aridhi Anderson, performed by the Day Dream Weekend Theatre Workshop team) is a collage of short stories about human relationships, based on the works of Mark Twain (The Diaries of Adam & Eve), Aridhi Anderson (A Love Story), Oscar Wilde (The Devoted Friend), and The Brothers Grimm (The Fisherman and His Wife).


The play follows the journey of two poets navigating divergent outlooks on life while affirming each other’s art and perspectives. It examines the essence of art as a means to absorb and express every aspect of the human experience, no matter how unconventional or far removed from the mainstream. It offers a view of art as a way for real people to share real stories, sometimes through side-splitting humour and at other times with greater gravity. It is a universe of experiences and emotions, unpacking the timeless themes of love, loss, friendship and aspirations.

Viewer discretion advised: this play contains mature themes, dark humour, and coarse language.
