Are authentic selves only attainable in our own safe spaces? Is acceptance only possible through compromise? Can we really be understood through our words, raw and uncensored?
Lost Personhood: The Nuggets Anthology includes three short pieces, exploring the struggle and hope of building connections between alienated individuals in a stifling society. Through puppetry and object theatre, the show unveils the essence and uncanniness of being human.

I Wear My Heart on My Sleeve is a modern, metropolitan tale of how a man and a woman come together to bridge the gap between their alienated selves and the rest of the highly social, mechanical world, trying to overcome their haunting childhoods.
