Summary

Imagine you're scared for your adult sibling. They're on the brink and you want to keep them safe. You think they're mentally ill but they think they're just leftwing.
To make the right choices together you'll need to know the right things. The big question: how do you know if you know the right things?
Where Sat The Lovers is about codes, hallucinations, Isaac Newton, war crimes, seeing meaning where there's none and vice versa. It's about facing an overwhelming world and trying to make sense of it all.
Created by Carys D. Coburn with MALAPROP Theatre, it was first staged at Project Arts Centre, Dublin, as part of the 2021 Dublin Fringe Festival, directed by Claire O'Reilly.
Available since: 10/26/2023.
Print length: 50 pages.
