WRITTEN BY JAMES LEWISDIRECTED BY DAVID BRADY
“One day, maybe even tomorrow, and maybe only once, I want to wake up and feel it. Feel like today is the day when I'm not going to feel so bloody awful and alone all the time…”Jamie and Naomi collide on a weekend that will cause them to question everything they ever thought they knew about themselves.
Nick meets Karen and their lives will never be the same again.
In a world where love can be swiped on a whim and the path of your whole life is determined by the delay of just one train, is there ever the right time to say what you really feel?
Proforça Theatre Company presents this critically acclaimed new piece of writing about a search for fulfilment, second-hand love and the hope of one day becoming something better than you are.
Because sometimes, to follow your heart you have to give it away to someone else.
Feel is written by James Lewis and directed by David Brady. We are delighted to be returning with our second piece of original work for this brand new run of shows following our 2018 production run of "Feel" and "Feel More".
