“Who do you think I am?” is the question this play asks. As a group of nine exceptional performers offer up stories of their lives, heartaches, joys, pain, and their achievements. Devised in collaboration with guest director Scott Williams (The Impulse Company, London), the actors bravely confront the way the world sees them, and how they see the world.
