SEEKER

By Marie-Claude Verdier

Translated by Alexis Diamond

Translated from Seeker (Quebec, Canada)

Lomond is a Seeker. He reads, sees and feels the memories of others for the police. This time, though, it’s different. He’s on a top secret mission for the Space Force…and his ex. Niamh has just returned from Mars with “the Wizard”, an object containing enigmatic memories she can’t access. To read the Wizard’s cache of memories, Lomond must exchange “a memory for a memory.” He throws himself headfirst into the task…and into the unknown.

A new work by an award-winning new playwright, Seeker was first presented at la 10e édition du festival de lectures publiques Dramaturgies en Dialogue.
