I'm Not Here Right Now

Testing your faith in reality, this play questions the nature of truth. If one individual sees something that falls outside of the objective reality that we all unquestionably trust, who will believe them? Will they just be seen as “crazy”? This play explores important themes – the subjective nature of reality, and the human instinct of believing what everyone else regards as true. Although performed beautifully by Valentina Ceschi, the play felt longer than it needed to be, as it takes a long time to build up to the point of the story. Nonetheless, this play has a satisfying storyline with an exceptional finish, and the performances from both Ceschi, and her narrator, play out stunningly.

Roundabout @ Summerhall, until 30 Aug.
