If this isn’t Eden then where the Hell am I?
Author(s): Emily Foxton
Company: Reckless Optimism
A character enters the space. He has a role to play, lines to say; he knows his objective. Then a shattering realisation splits his world apart, forcing him to question everything.
If this isn’t Eden then where the Hell am I? is a genre-defying meta-comedy. Weaving together surrealism, personal drama and philosophy, it’s about the weirdness and intensity of a rehearsal room. The illusive magic of acting. The heartbreak and elation that goes into writing and directing. It’s about unrequited love, and the loss of innocence, and trying to carve your own path in spite of a world that wants to control, condition and repress you.
