An intensely physical two-hander about dreams and one woman’s fight not to find her father.

Ever dreamt you were dreaming? We each spend 25 years asleep yet no one really knows why we dream. Now, Luna has the answer. The trouble is she can’t remember it, or doesn’t want to.

From acclaimed writer/director Mark Murphy, this unflinching, discomforting but ultimately consoling story is a slick and sinister thriller from the darkest recesses of the mind.

‘boldly blurring the boundaries between sleep and waking in its tale of deep psychological trauma handed on from father to daughter’

‘a moving micro-study of how crushingly difficult it is for the human spirit to survive betrayal by those who are supposed to love us best, whether that betrayal takes place on the streets of Mexico City, or in the deceptive tranquility of an English suburb, 20 years ago’
