Edinburgh previews of ANTLER Theatre's prize-winning new show…

It’s spring. The world is blossoming. Phillip’s potted daffodil is dying. A copywriter at an advertising agency, fading into the background of a pale office wall, he rearranges words until they work. But life isn't so easily edited.

Phillip doesn't want to be Phillip. But what if he never really has been? What if Phillip is yet to become Phillip? And then there’s Person, who isn’t anybody… yet.

Previous IdeasTap Underbelly Award winners Antler return to CPT with If I Were Me, a playfully surreal portrayal of the performance of identity.

A work-in-progress of If I Were Me (then called COPY) previewed at CPT in 2014. It later won the Suitcase Prize at the Pulse Festival 2014.

About the company

ANTLER is an award-winning company, telling stories through theatre and film. The stories we tell are rooted in what we're curious about. Things we think are important are humour, playfulness and inventive theatricality. We work collaboratively. ANTLER made their debut at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe, with This Way Up and Maria, 1968 both receiving critical acclaim. Their 2013 show Where the White Stops won the IdeasTap Edinburgh Underbelly Award and was nominated for Best Ensemble at The Stage Awards.
