INSIDE Leg Productions proudly announces the World Première
of Identity Panic - a new play by up-and-coming Finnish
playwright, Mikko Isomäki.
Identity Panic is a film noir influenced comedy set in
Los Angeles about crime and its inevitable consequences.
The action takes place in the dishevelled flat of two unemployed
drifters who, in a desperate attempt to free themselves from their
penury, have decided to turn to crime.
But things soon start to go wrong with the arrival of fellow
potential-felon and gang member Sam Cady, a fantastically spaced
out and dysfunctional pseudo-artist who unwittingly manages to
discombobulate everyone and everything.
The panic that follows becomes a state of mind where truth and
falsity become almost indistinguishable.
In drawing from the work of Chandler, Hemingway and the Coen
Brothers, Isomäki has created a terrifically zany, perplexing
and original play with an intimate, filmic feel.
In addition to writing plays, Mikko Isomäki is also a prize-winning
Sebastian Hume has directed both nationally and abroad. His work
includes: Waiting for Godot (2002), Richard III
(2000), An Inspector Calls (1999), Journey's End
(1998). A Midsummer Summer Night's Dream (1998).
