What is it?
Step into the belly of the Blue Whale, where the dancers are hot and the music is cool. You’re handed a drink sent by a mysterious woman at the end of the bar, who invites you to take a trip on her own special rollercoaster.
First Draft‘s Brainville at Night is a stylish adventure into the film noir-ish world of Ingrid’s memories and imagination. So what if the doctors tell her that she lacks insight and the ability to empathise? Nothing is going to stop Ingrid; labels like “fronto-temporal dementia” never meant anything to her anyway. Whatever happens, she carries the love, excitement and romance of her life within her.
Featuring music, movement, projection and a fantastic ensemble cast, Brainville at Night is a new play by Alexander Moschos, transferring to the Jack Studio for a strictly limited run of eight performances. It follows director Matthew Parker’s previous Jack Studio successes with A Woman Alone and Mary Rose in his trademark imaginative style.
