A man stands in a pool of light in front of a room of silent strangers ready and willing to believe he’s a real person. But he tells us he is only an actor – that his words and ideas belong to someone else. The more he tells us, the less we think for ourselves. We are truly in the dark.
What if everything we believe and experience is an illusion designed to make us forget all that’s important? Are we alone on our own private stages? Part of what’s happening or merely watching?
A thought provoking comic journey beyond the 4th Wall into the dangerous slippery territory that lies beneath the written word – and right before our eyes.
