‘You’ve stopped fighting now and are standing beside me. Here we are. My twin, my friend, my me. All gathered to say goodbye.’
How do you say goodbye to your nemesis, your genesis?
Laura returns home for the death of her father, but Laura is now Mark. He, along with Gary and Sullivan, must decide on how he is remembered.
They must find a way to forgive, find a way to each other and find a way to recognise themselves again.
A beautiful, relentless and fiercely funny new play, exploring the delicate strength it takes to be all that is expected of you.
Supported by a research commission from Project Arts Centre.
