A thought-provoking new play from emerging theatremakers Loom exploring the roles we play, for ourselves and for others.
Alice, a struggling actor, is hired by a man to play the role of (someone’s) lifetime - agreeing to live in his house as his estranged daughter, Melissa. As the experiment plays out - exploring dynamics of father/daughter, boss/employee, youth/age, and men/women - the balance of power shifts in increasingly explosive ways...
Loom is composed of Éadaoin Fox and Rosa Mäkelä. Blending the forms of theatre and film, the company explores classic and contemporary concerns where the familiar is made strange and the strange made quotidian. This is You blends modes of theatre, film, and performance where boundaries and definitions are erased in exciting new ways.
