Manny is getting a divorce. His wife’s only reason to him is, “I just don’t know who you are anymore.” After his wife’s quick Facebook status update, he is immediately bombarded with phone calls, forcing him to share the bad news to everyone he knows. In doing so, he finds himself delivering drastically different versions of the same story, depending on who he is talking to, whether it’s his boss or best friend or mom… Suddenly he reconsiders his wife’s final words and looks to his multiple personas for the answer…
In ancient Latin, persona means “mask”. In A Night In (Or the Night My Wife Left), LIV creations evolves the mask into being through puppetry and object theatre. Each one of Manny’s personas is embodied by a puppet that he interviews, gets high with, and kidnaps all in one night, as he tries to understand who he truly is. As a theatre and film production company, LIV creations uses projected video, featuring both a cast on stage and on screen, in conjunction with puppetry and object theatre to tell Manny’s story, a surreal journey into his unconscious mind.
