Director Statement

We created this show on the shoey-est of shoestrings and I'm so incredibly proud of the result. Sheer passion and love combined with some incredibly skilled people were the reason this show was possible, and all we want is for more people to see it. It's a show that reflects the confusion that is rife in the current age of social media, dating apps and #metoo movements where we often feel our worst even when we're trying our best.
