                                    Illusions of Liberty

Air is invisible.
A vibe is invisible.
Time is invisible.
A giggle is invisible.
And so are many illnesses.

'Illusions of Liberty' is a Black Comedy about, a woman who has a fake identity, but not one of her choosing. She is in a constant battle to maintain what people believe she is, It’s a matter of survival. Over the course of four days,after some traumatic news, she battles with hard truths, and convincing lies.

Liberty Jones is a Principal Cellist, for five years she has been plagued with an increasing number of bewildering symptoms. Five days ago, Liberty received a diagnosis of an invisible illness. 'Illusions of Liberty' follows her in the four days where we see her struggle with her diagnosis and the mother daughter relationship. As she struggles to maintain her equilibrium in her, new status and relationships. How does she feel when the dust settles? How does she deal with her new normal? And how many new ‘normals’ will she have to adjust to, in four days.


"So many different types of tired…. And so...few…. beds"
