In An Alien Landscape

by Danny Start

directed by Julie Ellen

Albie is an ordinary man who experienced ‘a scuffle with death’ which unleashed his creative genie. He can’t stop painting since he emerged from a coma. The extraordinary chaos of Albie’s life and the sound of a continuous rushing white noise in his head drives his compulsion to paint. What is happening to him? There’s no escaping who he was as his past still haunts him; but what lies ahead?

Inspired by a true story, Birds of Paradise Theatre Company’s latest production takes you on an ironic and humorous journey entering the world of brain injury, consciousness, memory and creativity!
