Imagine a Room' is an absurdist comedy which unfolds in a land of no time and no name. Four people are in a secure room, when a mysterious presence in the room starts to create ruptures in this “safe space”. The walls become porous, the room starts turning on its axis, and the characters find themselves slipping in and out of stories, legends, and songs - forcing them to confront their fears of what lies outside the room. As the characters negotiate this constantly shifting space, moving in and out of it, we are invited to reflect on our own understandings of safety and freedom.
