There’s a common misconception that lobsters mate for life. But in fact, they don’t. They go through a sort of serial monogamy, not quite a one night stand but not quite a lifelong commitment either. It’s as if, like humans often do, they keep searching for the best one.
Filmed entirely by the cast and in one single live take at Project Space Upstairs, LOBSTERS aims to showcase how the current landscape of love and connection in Ireland has evolved over this ongoing period of uncertainty.
Based on a collection of first-person testimonies, LOBSTERS aims to connect with audiences with a brand new approach to filming theatre shows by allowing the three characters to have complete control of the camera. This will allow audiences to experience the action from the actors’ perspective, the audience perspective, and even as a fly on the wall. LOBSTERS strides confidently into a new world of theatre film where the camera not only captures the show, it is the show.
An open-captioned stream will be available to viewers.
The film will also be available to ticket holders to watch back until 48 hours after the stream.
