How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

January 27 — March 22, 2009
In the Ellyn Bye Studio

By Fin Kennedy
Directed by Rose Riordan
“You are who you can prove you are. You are what people think and that’s the easiest thing in the world to change.” – Mike

If you had to disappear from your life, who would you call first? In this thrilling new play, a young advertising executive reaches the breaking point and decides to drop out as quickly as possible. So he digs up a shoestring relation in a seedy corner of the country who can give him a quick and detailed lesson in the art of escape. The mission? To dispose of everything that defined his former self. It’s an adrenaline-charged, apocalyptic journey to the edge of existence. Like a live and intense Blade Runner meets Memento, How To Disappear will have you questioning everything that makes us who we are in the 21st Century.
