The Narcissist is a gripping, inventive and witty take on personal and political communication in the internet age.

Everyone needs Jim.

His mother. His best friend. His brother. His new lover. A hopeful future President.

But can Jim really help anyone, when he isnt sure who he is any more, or what he actually believes? An expert in electoral strategy, hes forged a successful career by advising politicians how to communicate with voters. But following seismic shifts in the political landscape, hes disillusioned. And his marriage is in crisis. As he juggles the demands on his life through his smartphone, will the lure of success and fame prove irresistible?

Christopher Shinn is a celebrated American playwright whose work has been produced to huge acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. His first play, Four, premiered at the Royal Court in 1998 and, in 2008, his play Dying City was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones, Arcane, Wolf Hall) and Claire Skinner (McDonald & Dodds, The Pale Horse, Outnumbered) lead the cast.

The Narcissist is directed by Josh Seymour.
