The world stage premiere of new work by visionary writer Philip Ridley (The Pitchfork Disney, The Reflecting Skin, Mercury Fur).

Five stories that are by turns dark, tender, shocking and dazzling, linked and reflecting each other like shards of a broken mirror. Haunting glimpses of a world that seethes and glitters with strangeness and menace, and where nothing is quite what it seems.

". . . It's all brilliantly bizarre!
Maryon's transitions between monologues and characters are brilliant smooth, immediately transporting us into a new world with a simple change of outfit, body language or accent. She manages to convey the humanity in each character, regardless of the extremity or strangeness of the context which births them."
