“Some guys listen to music, some guys like to sing. I like to work people out.”
Rainer keeps on forgetting stuff. Even the city she knows so well. And when her one-time lover Jack disappears, when her mum keeps on calling, she has to ask herself: is everything really OK?
A finalist for Samuel French’s Off-Broadway Award, longlisted for Theatre Uncut’s Political Playwriting Award and winner of the Prix Royal competion in Paris, Rainer is about an invisible person who we always see. It follows Rainer, a solitary delivery rider, as she moves across London, delivering food to whoever will summon her. From luxury flats to leafy suburbs, she loves to create stories in her head, re-imagining London as one of her favourite Sci-fi films or Scorsese’s Taxi Driver.
