When Claire, a naive young actress, gives the worst Shakespearean performance ever seen, Sam, her bitter and disillusioned boyfriend, makes it his mission to teach her the brutal truth of life as an actor. But all is not as it seems.
What starts as a darkly comic study of two failed actors trapped in a toxic relationship gradually unravels into a surreal satire on the nature of theatre itself. Filled with humour, humanity and many twists and turns, this exciting new play asks: Why do we watch theatre? Why do actors act? And is theatre actually important?
