The You and The Me is an experimental two-hand theatre piece exploring nature versus nurture through an intimate connection between separated twins. It contains fragments of stories around an adoption, beginning with the twins in utero and going on to portray their parents, their future spouses and their adult selves when they meet, seemingly for the first time. A meditation on evolution, loneliness and the power of personal stories to flummox statistics.
