  • The City Speaks

    An old man in the grip of dementia finds himself lost on Hackney's busy Kingsland Road. Who is he, what is he trying to escape from? A lyrical journey through a familiar landscape that is at once known and unknown; a palimpsest in which the past is seen as a reflection of the present, in which the memory of a terrible crime is glimpsed in reflections and shadows, hints and muttered phrases. I am not you are not me is an existential detective story written on the glass and concrete of a street that leads from City to cemetery.
