Draw Me Close

By Jordan Tannahill

Running Time: Approx. 1 hour

Draw Me Close

Draw Me Close blurs the worlds of live performance, virtual reality and animation to create a vivid memoir about the relationship between a mother and her son, in the wake of her terminal cancer diagnosis. Weaving theatrical storytelling with cutting-edge technology, the performance allows the audience member to take the part of protagonist and experience life as Jordan inside a live, animated world.

The experience is written and directed by award-winning playwright and filmmaker Jordan Tannahill, in a co-production between the National Theatre's Immersive Storytelling Studio and National Film Board of Canada, in collaboration with All Seeing Eye, with illustrations by Teva Harrison. Draw Me Close is a preview presented by the Young Vic.

Audience Members will experience this immersive and intimate performance individually in a series of approx. 1 hour timeslots, running from 10:45am to 8:45pm each day. Due to the unique nature of this presentation, single tickets are available to buy one at a time via the Young Vic.
