Danny’s in a chute. Maisie and Friel deliver mail. It’s the Invasion—what’s real and what’s a dream?
In a laundry chute, a school teacher talks to God. Meanwhile, two posties start their rounds on the morning an unknown Invasion threatens their quiet community. As the day progresses, time and reality distort: the sun rises in the south-west, a dog can shapeshift, and there’s a boy missing. As the characters’ lives intersect, what’s real and what have they created? This new work combining naturalistic text and dream-like movement explores isolation and the power of escape through fantasy, to discover how people survive when the world has ended. Also, Enya is playing.
