A film noir on crime and its inevitable consequences


Preview by Paul Nelson

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 poet.

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).

Identity Panic written by Mikko Isomäki, Directed by Sebastian Hume, Produced by Arnd Federspiel at The Greenwich Playhouse, Station Forecourt, Greenwich High Road, Greenwich SE10 until November 16 at 7.45pm. Tickets 020 8858 9256
