Her Very Many Faces

Maddie Lynes

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

"If someone could just tell me, I’d use the guide for every single second of every single day. I’m just so tired of not being able to— I just don’t feel like a person"

Her Very Many faces explores the lies we tell to be loved a little more, and how these lies destabilise our relationships with things, people and places. Wider social structures, such as class and gender, condition the lies that the protagonist (Her) tells, as she struggles to move between her home life with elderly, working-class parents, and her university life among privileged students. Her eating disorder becomes the only thing she can control as she grapples with her sense of self. But when Her's lies begin to dissolve, perhaps she can find comfort in the truth of who she is.

This production is recommended for ages 12 and above.
