Can desire transcend time?
A man and a woman living centuries apart in the same flat gradually become aware of one another. This mysterious sexual charge permeates their work and their sleep, driving them to distraction and inspiration.
In 2017, Niaz, a British-Iranian artist seeks refuge to unravel which elements of her current crisis are existential and which are marital. In 1821, Michael, an Irish mapmaker, is scarred by the Napoleonic wars, his new solitary life a temporary shield from the shadows of his Dublin past.
As the walls between Michael and Niaz crumble, ghosts long-forgotten find their way home.
Today I Live explores the trauma of immigration, drawing on Ferdowsi's epic poem Shahnameh and legends of the Irish hero Cúchulainn.
Playwright Susan-Jane Harrison is a RADA graduate now resident in California. This RADA Festival production of Today I Live is the UK Premiere of her writing for the stage.
There will be a post-show Q&A on Sat 25 Jun lasting approximately 25 minutes.
