Synopsis

Just imagine a woman who works with children. Now imagine a man who works with children. Imagine the woman who works with children has a secret that she’s ashamed of. Imagine the man is going through a messy divorce. Now imagine there are regulations in place to protect the children they’re working with from inappropriate things like dark emotions or the vulnerability of reality.

Multi-award-winning writer, performer and director Nicola Gunn (Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster, Green Screen) uses her seductively subversive humour to turn our attention to the moral and ethical complexity of working with children and other social taboos.

With the artistic support of world-renowned Belgian arts centre CAMPO, Gunn takes on the sometimes necessarily hypocritical lives of teachers, artists and regulators in an emotionally evocative and technologically inventive solo performance.

Gunn’s theatre is tantalising, entertaining and often bewildering in the best possible way.
