About the event
H and B are a young couple struggling with the pressures of their relationship. When a freak event causes them to switch bodies, they must learn to face their problems from an entirely new perspective. The more they learn, the more their lives descend into chaos. How far down can the human mind sink when given a new identity?
Raising Cain Productions brings you this new dark comedy thriller by Christopher Sainton-Clark, about love, relationships, trust and identity. Written and published in lockdown and produced at Sheringham Little Theatre and St George’s Theatre, Great Yarmouth, this one-act thriller received backing from the Arts Council, huge critical acclaim and was immediately chosen by Holt Festival to perform there in 2021. Now, join “My Other Half” for its Edinburgh Fringe debut and delve into this head-spinning, side-splitting, gut-wrenching journey into the human psyche.
