Gabrielle MacPherson’s debut production of Outside enjoys it’s premiere at The Space this weekend, opening on 18 February, and running until 20 February.
The production follows Willa who hasn’t ever left her house until now. For 30 years, each moment of her life has been controlled, and she spent every night locked in her room. Now, she finds herself in a witness questioning suite, searching for evidence of her existence. She has slipped through the cracks of society and her only reality outside the house exists between the pages of the books her semi-absent father publishes.
But she can’t be hidden away anymore. A dark secret is about to come to light. Willa’s attempt at freedom can lead to nothing but more horrific revelations. Can revenge ever be justified?
Gabrielle MacPherson today said “I am so excited about Outside’s première at The Space. In such a difficult and uncertain time for everyone the team and I feel so fortunate to tell Willa’s story.
I worked on Outside throughout 2020, a year where none of us could go out, so it’s really wonderful that in 2021 Willa and I get to venture outside our homes and into yours – from a safe distance, of course.”
Karis Crimson directs. Her previous theatre credits include Bette and Joan (Sundial Theatre), Cry, Blueberry (The Cockpit Theatre) and The Resistance Collection (X). She is the co-founder of Pelvic Films with upcoming releases including Jan + The Gang.
