Show details


Online, live-streamed performance

Liberty Jones is a Principal Cellist.

For five years she has been plagued with an increasing number of bewildering symptoms.

Five days ago, Liberty received a diagnosis of an illness that no one can actually see.

'Illusions of Liberty' follows her for four days where we see her struggle with her diagnosis and the mother-daughter relationship.

At the same time, she struggles to maintain her equilibrium in her new status and relationships.

How does she feel when the dust settles? How does she deal with her normal? And how many new' normals' will she have to adjust to in four days.

Including live music, 'Illusions of Liberty' is a funny, poignant and revealing Black comedy drama which challenges us to look below the surface and 'see' the invisible.

It's a story of love, loss and hope.
