Saft Lol vividly tells a story in exactly 500 words. Two lonely men discuss the loss of a friend. The format is that of a play / script and the piece is written as if we are over hearing a personal but everyday conversation between two people. The two men's relationship to their lost friend is teased out through their colourful banter Flash 500 is a distinctive anthology by artists who use words and writing as part of their work. Thirty-two artists were invited to write 500 words with no other restriction in content or form. The wide-ranging collection includes stories, poems, plays, song lyrics, diary entries, real-life experiences, recipes, letters and fantastical narratives.
