The Irresistible is a reckless, intoxicating love letter to the subconscious; an exploration of the invisible and insidious nature of unconscious bias. Told through multiple parallel narratives that intersect through mystery and sci-fi. Locations and time bleed into one another with dream-like fluidity and performers transition from one character to the next, shapeshifting at breakneck-speed.
Deep in the gloom a phone rings. She takes the call. The voice on the line slips beneath her skin and curls its fingers around his stomach. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can barely feel it. You can’t hold on tight enough.
These people, these sisters and lovers and pilots are joined deep beneath the surface, below knowledge, down where desire and depravity lie. The line goes dead and they catch a glimpse of what’s to come, as it retreats back into the fog.
Ages 15+. Best suited to intimate/medium black box theatres and audiences of 100-400.
