A theatrical comedy meta horror multimedia experience – this show has all the adjectives and more! A desperate actor seeks a friend to be the ‘reader’ for their self tape. But as the tape rolls, and the Actor goes through his preening and insecure motions, another casting comes in. And then another… Soon, the actor descends into a Kafka-esque nightmare of swirling pages, where each new tape request from the unseen Agent suggests something sinister is also at play. What’s more, the Actor is haunted by terrifying visions that hint at secrets buried, or possibly just the fracturing of a delicate psyche with a rapidly diminishing sense of self who will go to extreme lengths to pursue success.
He’s going to need your help. Unless it’s already too late…
