Written, composed and performed by Ray Scannell
Directed by Tom Creed
MIMIC tells the story of a boy called Julian Nearey who grows up in 1980s Ireland, in a very traditional Irish household dominated by religion. He discovers his talent for being a mimic and entertains everybody with his impressions of Morrissey and Columbo before it takes a more sinister turn, involving celebrity culture and plastic surgery, taking Julian away from home before eventually bringing him back again.
Performed and underscored on a piano, this one-man tour-de-force is a unique andentertaining vision of what happens to a nation that forgets its heritage.
