That Is Not Who I Am
A slippery new thriller in which nothing is as it seems and nobody is who they are.
When Ollie has his identity stolen on the internet, it’s bad enough. But soon it’s not just his online life collapsing – his real life is being stolen too. Who is the person really doing and saying these awful things? And who can Ollie trust to see the real him when the world sees him as a monster? Did the real him ever exist in the first place?
Dave Davidson has worked in the security industry for 38 years. This is his first play ever produced.
“This work genuinely has the capacity to change everything.” Playwright Dennis Kelly
“It is a play of rare political urgency, savage wit and real compassion and wisdom. It is a play that defines this country as it blinks its way out of the pandemic and into a chilling new world. It is, I think, a startlingly significant piece of work.”
Playwright Simon Stephens
“I looked up after reading the play and felt like the world had changed. Everything looked different. People need to see this.” Playwright Laura Wade
