Seesome Theatre and New Celts productions Parasites



Expelled from school aged 15, Alicia battles for her right to exist. Charities and the welfare state view her as the one thing everybody hates: a parasite. But who are the real bloodsuckers? A provocative coming-of-age dramedy from award-winning playwright James Harker (★★★★★ (Skinny), for Gary: a Love Story) and award-winning director James Beagon (★★★★½ (Manchester Theatre Awards), for Antigone na h’Éireann). Parasites explores the complicated relationship between the state and the individual in today’s society. What is the price of dignity? How do systems define us? And can Alicia ever truly take control of her own life?
