    Carrie has moved into her bathroom. She lives off slim noodles, endless cups of coffee, takes long tea-infused baths and does face masks. Every week she is visited by a volunteer who has been hired to help her leave the bathroom and reintegrate into society. This week, it’s your turn. Breathe deeply. You’ll need to.

    As some of our most prominent leaders, artists and intellectuals advocate “self-care” as a means of resistance, even as a revolutionary act, we are asking whether creating a kinder world really begin with yourself? Or is this ideology just a brilliant disguise for the godless materialism of late-stage capitalism? Must we, perhaps, remove the cucumber from our eyes in order to see clearly again?

    You’re needy (sounds frustrating) is an offsite piece for one audience member, that touches on sleep, monotony, meditation, medication, and, of course, Gwenyth Paltrow. It will be hard, it will be uncomfortable, it may even be fatal. But we are making this show because it isn’t about you.

    It’s time to leave the bathroom and tear down the house.

    "...as performance art resplendent with talent and some big ideas, Narcissus will speak to many and shows great promise for the young theatre company who created it."

    "b(l)oom" shows some considerable talent at work"
    The Arts Review
    "With clever use of the absurd, provocative visuals and soundscape, and a cast clearly comfortable with intimacy, the story is visceral enough to transfix its audience for sixty minutes"

    "Our children live in the most deprived ward in London and their parents cannot afford to pay for the classes and activities many more privileged children enjoy after school and at the weekends. A free-to-access youth group run by a local theatre in a professional setting is an incredible opportunity."

    Local school teacher
