Best Male Performer, Dublin Fringe Festival 2009
Mimic is a poetic and extraordinarily prescient solo performance about a culture in economic and spiritual freefall. It is a story about a young man, Julian Neary, who becomes a professional Mimic and leaves home to get away from the culture and family life of 1980s Ireland, and about what he finds when he returns home years later. A dark satire about imitation, authenticity, and what happens to a nation that leaves its heritage behind.
