Things happen here. Things you can only dream of.
Out of Character Theatre Company presents a dizzying new show, In/Significant. Ray lives a safe life in a still world but when he discovers a young woman lying dead on a bench everything in his life is about to spin.
In/Significant is part of the In/Hospitable series of science-fiction plays which explore the tensions and challenges of living with mental illness. Based on a series of workshops and interviews with clinicians, carers and those with lived experience, this disorienting drama will take you into new worlds where facts can make inspiring fiction.
