By Eoin McAndrew

Part of 37 Plays, a national playwriting project to create a series of 37 brand new plays that reflect the world we live in today.


'What world is this where a person as special as you are, doesn’t even realise it?’ Michal thinks he’s a ‘Nothing Person’ - just a person who doesn’t mean anything to anyone and doesn’t make anyone’s life better by being in it. But then he meets Russell. Russell is the wild-eyed, charismatic leader of an isolationist cult, and he has very, very big plans for Michal.

"A slippery, charismatic, perfectly formed monologue exploring cults, loneliness, and what desperate minds will cling to. Thoughtfully written and beautifully sparse."
