WORLD PREMIERE | TRAVERSE THEATRE COMPANY
By Rona Munro
The brain is just a 3lb lump of jelly…
Donny wakes up in hospital, desperate to see his partner Emma and not understanding why she hasn't come to see him yet.
Soon he realises he's forgotten something. Something important. Donny still sees the world as the person he used to be three years ago, when his life was in a very different place.
Donny’s Brain is where rom-com meets neuroscience, delving deep into the fascinating and eternal mystery that is the human brain, and following Donny and Emma on a painfully funny and moving journey as all they know about love and loss is thrown into question.
In the end, are we just a bunch of chemicals sloshing around? And who are we without our memories?
Written by acclaimed Scottish playwright Rona Munro (Iron, The Last Witch, The James Plays), this dynamic and visually striking production is directed by award-winning director Caitlin Skinner (Hope and Joy, Woke).
