Molly Davies' new play exploring the politics of neurodiversity and the power of sharing a platform.
There was something strange about the new guy. But now he’s dead. Everyone needs an empty stage, a mic, a London bus, and to get their stories straight...
'Imposter 22' has been developed over a period of 5 years by Access All Areas Associate Artists Kirsty Adams, Cian Binchy, Housni Hassan (DJ), Dayo Koleosho, Stephanie Newman, Lee Phillips and Charlene Salter alongside Molly Davies and Hamish Pirie.
“As a piece of theatre ‘Imposter 22’ lacks propulsion and dramatic bite...’Imposter 22’ doesn’t do much to develop wider conversations about inclusivity either in the arts or wider society. It just wants to exist and have a bit of fun whilst it’s at it. There may be nothing wrong with that, but it just doesn’t make for a good show as well intentioned as it may be.”
“I think it’s reasonable to say that a project like this should be judged on different criteria to the average theatre show, and if it sounds interesting you should totally go and see it. But I think it’s also reasonable to acknowledge that taken as a stage comedy it’s quite possibly in too rough a state to be enjoyable to the casual punter.”
“A genuinely engaging mystery, a night of intelligent commentary, and a meaningful commentary on the treatment of learning-disabled individuals, ‘Imposter 22’ succeeds in being many things without any becoming the primary focus.”
“ ‘Imposter 22’ is a hilarious whodunnit with a twist ending, which kept us enthralled in the character's antics throughout, whilst presenting a clear message on the power of a neurodiverse platform.”
