Mushrooms

This week I directed a short piece of new writing for all female theatre company, Instinct Theatre. We were lucky enough to create a multimedia piece using microphones and live sound-scaping in collaboration with Brigitte Hart (violin) and Chloe Penney (harp).

 

Mushrooms, by Benjamin Wal

Director: Chloe Doherty

Marina Tapakoudes

Eliza Perraine  

 

"Two women are struggling with their relationship and decide to take magic mushrooms as a novel kind of joint therapy. The tension is clear between them, but eventually, as they wait for the drugs to have an effect, they begin to warm to each other again, and reminisce about beginning of their relationship. But as they become comfortable, a confession is made."
