Children's paintings hang on the walls. A few chairs and tables wait to be unfolded. Mason is helping out as best he can. Today is his first day as a volunteer at a community centre where he has offered to start a choir. He meets Hazel who has been cooking lunch for those in need for years, old Bernard who lives in the neighbourhood, Beth who's fighting for custody of her daughter... Alexander Zeldin is an associate artist at the Odéon and the National Theatre of Great Britain. This last play in his trilogy on intimacy in times of crisis, THE INEQUALITIES, is as soft-spoken as the first two. Simple gestures, lasting silences give us fresh access to  a reality that often remains hidden. Zeldin and his actors, step by imperceptible step, reveal the progress of ordinary lives as each confronts its own personal apocalypse.
