There is a common misconception that lobsters mate for life. But in fact they don't. They go through a sort of serial monogamy, not quite a one night stand but not a lifelong commitment either. As if, like humans often do, they keep looking for the best one.
Filmed entirely by the cast in one single live take at Project Space Upstairs, LOBSTERS aims to showcase how the current landscape of love and connection in Ireland has evolved over this ongoing period of uncertainty.
Based on a collection of first-person testimonies, LOBSTERS aims to connect with audiences with a brand new approach to filming theatre shows by allowing the three characters to have complete control of the camera. This will allow audiences to experience the action from the actors' perspective, the audience perspective, and even as a fly on the wall. LOBSTERS strides confidently into a new world of theatre film where the camera not only captures the show, it is the show.
