Don’t Shoot the Albatross

Blending dance, stand-up and pop music, this explosive monologue follows one person asking impossible questions: why am I like this? Who made sushi so expensive? And, are the straights ok?

Are you interested in forgiving yourself and finding inner peace? No, neither is Alby. Which is why they’ve decided to spend their twenties running from their issues and sleeping with strangers. It’s all going REALLY WELL. Until one night, whilst screwing yet another accountant, Alby stares too deeply into their eyes.

Walking home, strange white birds begin to appear, and as the city unfolds in front of them, so does a secret buried long ago.
