A modern day insom-com that focuses on sleep deprivation, existential angst, alternative realities… and Sheep.
”London’s a fragile flower, she needs darkness to make her grow, not sunlight. When night falls, she blooms. All kinds of sh*t goes down on her watch”
It’s been twenty-one nights since Dexy last slept. It could be down to his choice of pillow. Duck Down. It could be down the heating in his flat. Nonexistent. Or it could be the fact his girlfriend’s missing, the police are scouring the streets and Dexy’s past is catching up with him.
Ensconced in his third floor flat, over the course of an evening Dexy attempts to cast his mind back and fit the relevant pieces together, but as the blare of the sirens gets louder and night turns to morning the lines between dreams and reality and rational thinking and insanity become ever more blurred.
As if this wasn’t enough, Dexy is visited by three very different people during the night.
Ciaran Lonsdale stars as Dexy, with James Groom as Leo, Niamh Watson as Margot and Bruce Kitchener as Vic. Written by David Cantor, Sheep is directed by Georgia Leanne Harris.
Sheep plays White Bear Theatre from 18 July – 5 August 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
