GREY MAN STREAMED FREE ON-DEMAND FROM MON 31 OCT UNTIL SAT 17 DEC
★★★★ "A brilliantly eerie nailbiter" (The Guardian)
★★★★ "A gorgeous, haunting monologue" (The Stage)
Maya’s teenage older sister is always telling stories. Usually about the grey man from the high street, and the woman who turned him grey. That woman. She can turn anyone grey. First, it’s your breath, then your fingers, your insides. Then you go into lockdown...
So when Maya’s sister ups and moves into the cupboard one day, Maya thinks she knows why.
But what if her sister’s stories are concealing more difficult truths?
In this pioneering digital production, two parallel versions of the same character each tell their own story, in a chilling exploration of mental illness and the power of storytelling to haunt us or heal us…
