The Way I See It

After a sellout run at Liverpool Everyman George Thomas Miaris brings his debut play to Manchester. What would you say to yourself if you saw yourself in the street? Would you judge that form walking towards you? What about the man sat on the bus that keeps on looking over? What’s he thinking about? Is it about you? Can he smell you? Does he know you didn’t brush your teeth this morning? Or is he, just like you, worried about you judging him?Harriet never speaks to Sandra even though she lives next door. Barry will speak to anyone who will listen. Jordan and Denise never seem to have the right words. And Ty, well, Ty’s just happy he’s having chicken kiev, chips and beans tonight.A show that takes the seemingly dull narratives of the knaves all around us and pushes them into the spotlight, giving a microphone to the kid you see on his bmx, the mother who’s breaking her neck and the lovely lady you always meet in the charity shop.Exploring community, loneliness and the poetics in every day, George Thomas Miaris’ The Way I See It fuses spoken word with audio visual artistry in a layered form of storytelling.

'If Dylan Thomas had moved to the Northern inner city and written about young drug addicts and charity shops he might have ended up with The Way I See It.' ***** - Liverpool Echo" Miaris’ style sits between Dylan Thomas and Kate Tempest; he is skilled at moving us through these lives with personal and political anecdotes that feel poignant, relevant and expressed with new understanding." - State Of The Arts.
