Note: this show contains violence and sexual references.


When Sergio arrives in Ljubljana to give a lecture on Narcissus, the first thing he does after checking in to his hotel room is to get on an app and look for someone to have sex with.

A few hours later, once Igor has come and gone, Sergio spots a dark brown stain on the floor.

Looking closer, he sees that it's a blood stain.

And looking around, he discovers more and more blood stains all over the room.

As he begins to investigate, he gets drawn deeper and deeper into a dark murky world of desire, infatuation and murder.

Perfect material for the new play he's trying to write - if he can get out of Ljubljana alive.

The Rage of Narcissus is a fascinating and disturbing journey into the labyrinth of the self and the darkness within us.
