"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.
Running time: 2 hours and 10 minutes with one intermission.
