“Last night I woke up and found that I was not at home. And I was not wearing my own clothes. And then I wasn’t sure. Maybe they were my clothes, and I was someone else.”
In an unnamed American city, two strangers sell Christmas trees on the sidewalk; two cops work to solve a killing spree; and a young woman finds herself transforming in ways she could never have imagined.
A darkly comic thriller exploring the margins of a city and the violent fantasies they inspire.
In this new production of Jarcho’s Obie Award-winning play, Sam Pritchard and Chloe Lamford collaborate to reimagine the play as a series of installations inside The Site, a new space at the Royal Court.

"There’s a hint of film noir fun to proceedings, and several nods to screwball Coen Brothers comedy too… It’s baffling. It’s borderline barmy. But it’s also kind of brilliant"
Fergus Morgan | The Stage Read full review
