About this event

1979, a beach in Brazil. An elderly man takes his routine morning swim. Out at sea he has a seizure and is washed ashore and confronted by a local woman, who he assumes has saved him. Flattered and entranced by this enigmatic presence, he is seduced into revealing himself. As he seeks to justify his life he ultimately only succeeds in damning himself. Created with support and advice from the Holocaust Educational Trust, this play is an "uncompromising and brave" (Herald) and "Profoundly Moving" (EdFringe) expose of a charming manipulator and sociopathic narcissist.

"One of the most powerful and astonishing pieces of theatre I have ever seen... A true masterclass in acting and writing..." Daily Business
