A New Wolsey Young Company Production
How To Disappear Completely And Never Be Found

By Fin Kennedy
Directed by Rob Salmon

“What makes you who you are? A name? An address? A random collection of experiences, a few memories? You are who you can prove you are. You are what people think. And that’s the easiest thing in the world to change.”

When a young executive reaches breaking point and decides to disappear, he pays a visit to a master of the craft in a seafront fortune teller’s in Southend. Haunted by visitations from a pathologist who swears he is already lying flat out on her slab, he begins to re-live the nightmarish final hours that see his body retrieved from the Thames, stripped of everything that made him who he was.

This extraordinary play follows one man’s desperate attempts to buck the system, and asks what really makes us who we are in the 21st century.

Strong themes and moderate language make this play suitable for audiences aged 14+
