In development with director Shelley Knowles-Dixon

Produced by Sparkle and Dark Theatre Company

We meet Jerome and his friends through snippets of his memory, flights of his imagination and moments of his sensory experience. This is Jerome from his perspective.

This is an experimental piece that aims to explore how to represent stream-of-consciousness on stage.  Memories, the senses, dialogue, colours, sights and sounds - everything that makes up the moment-to-moment running of our conscious minds...
