Presented by MALAPROP Theatre
BlackCatfishMusketeer marks the London debut of Verity Bargate Award-winning writer Dylan Coburn Gray.
It’s about people getting to know each other through screens, and the presentation of old themes in rather new situations.
It’s about trust, doubt, closeness at a distance, and being worried you’ll die alone and your cats will eat you.
It mightn’t look like the internet (what does the internet look like?), but it feels like it.
It’s about meeting someone online, and all you know is their name and that they seem to like you as much as you like them. In fact, you think you love each other. But do you? Can you? And what is love, anyway? Maybe we don’t only not know, we can’t know; so let’s say what it isn’t.
BlackCatfishMusketeer premiered at Dublin Fringe Festival 2016. The show then toured to Summerhall as part of Edinburgh Fringe 2017, where MALAPROP is set to return with a new production, Everything Not Saved, in August 2018.
