Whole is a solo show about two people, one of them is on stage the other isn’t. In some parts of the world people believe that twins share a soul, so how can you be a twin alone? It is a brutal wander through the shadows of a bluebell wood at dusk, a map of a life written across two bodies. A dive into the depths of what happens when you lose part of yourself. It is a raw, tender, messy love story, a wound splashed in whisky & haunted by ghosts.

Whole premiered in 2021, watch the draft trailer (no sound)…
