Is this me? Or history?

Misplaced is a solo-show about two young women coming of age in wildly different worlds. One has just moved up to London and is already lost, finding her way by swiping right and popping pills.

Preceded by a 5-minute curtain-raiser – The House on the Embankment
The House on the Embankment, built by Stalin to house the Soviet elite, contained a sophisticated network of listening devices and hidden rooms where the residents’ every move was spied upon, with chilling fatal consequences. Many of the residents were executed because of the growing paranoia of an isolated and autocratic leader. The House on the Embankment is a short extract from stage adaptation of the novel by Y Trifonov.

Artist: Theresa Pine
Length: 5 minutes
