The Gift

The Gift

Abbie is going through the motions of life, a job she hates, ambitions she once had are disappearing, and there’s too much talking with not enough action. But then she makes a new friend at work. And suddenly life is a bit more bearable. And a lot of fun again! As much as she is having a good time, there is something about this new person in her life which she can’t quite figure out. It’s almost like she’s hiding something…..

Kevin Lee’s new play looks at how we engage with each other in today’s world against the backdrop of social media, our reliance on it and the fine line between reality and illusion.

These will be work in progress shows
