Mikey and Addie was originally commissioned by the London 2012 Festival and supported through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
Mikey is a sunny boy. He lives alone with his mum. Mikey’s mum has a secret. It’s not well kept. Everyone knows it. Everyone except Mikey.
Addie is a good girl. She doesn’t tell lies. Her father makes sure of that. Addie tells the truth. It’s what you have to do. Isn’t it?
It’s hard to tell when your life will change. The day you wake up normal, but end up falling far from everything you’ve ever known. Spinning into nothingness. Today is that day.
