GREY MAN: A Stage and Screen Experiment
Liminal Stage Productions presents a chilling Digital Short GREY MAN: A Stage and Screen Experiment this Autumn.
You know why he’s grey, don’t you?
You know why he’s grey?
She turned him grey…
First, it’s your breath, then your fingers, your insides. Then you go into lockdown...
This Halloween, Liminal Stage Productions bring a fast-paced and haunting Digital R&D Commission GREY MAN: A Stage and Screen Experiment, to our screens. Supported by The Space and transposed into digital form from the original “gorgeous, haunting” (The Stage) one-woman stage play, this hybrid stage and screen production intercuts two parallel versions of the same dark urban horror story, leaving us to decide which character is which and which story is the truth.
Maya’s teenage older sister is always telling stories. Like the one about the woman who turns people grey. Any people. Men, women, young old. When Maya’s sister ups and moves into the cupboard one day, she thinks she knows why.
GREY MAN: A Stage and Screen Experiment is the wickedly creepy story of two sisters, the older of whom wittily mythologises her own mental illness through a warped web of stories about a ‘grey man’; stalking the streets of the city and turned grey by the gentrification that has ousted him from his home. But what if her sister’s stories are concealing more difficult truths?
In a chilling exploration of mental illness, this production explores and the power of storytelling in its capacity to haunt us or heal us.
