“If you think you know what it’s like to be me you are seriously deluded.”   

Is it appropriation to invent a voice – or is it an act of empathy?   

If a playwright’s job is to make dialogue, is there a limit to how many characters she / he / they are entitled to invent? Who can these people be? And what if an invented voice says things that even the author would prefer not to hear?   

With characteristically provocative humour, Martin Crimp himself performs his latest work, using deep-fake computer technology to bring 299 unique characters to the stage.  

“I made stuff up, I invented shit, I checked my whole family into a hotel I couldn’t afford, none of it was true.”  

Internationally renowned playwright Martin Crimp returns to the Royal Court with his new play directed by Christian Lapointe.
