Killing Nana is a new play by Lee Lomas; a mancunian actor, tutor and playwright based in London. It is the second play Lomas has brought to the London Fringe scene, fresh off the success of his near-sellout show Sunrise For The Blind at The Tristan Bates, he is bringing his new piece to The Hen and Chickens Theatre in Highbury.
The piece is about a young man, Stephen, who is starting to dissociate from his environment and his loved ones. His mental health is deteriorating and he is sinking into an anxiety-fuelled state of depression. As the days pass he is grows ever more agoraphobic and finds he cannot trust his own impulses or the behaviour of anyone around him. He lives with his elderly Nana in the house he was raised in, she is his only living relative. His long-term girlfriend, Kimmy, also shares their home alongside Nana’s live-in carer, Anne. It is an increasingly claustrophobic situation and Stephens fractured perspective soon starts to create collateral confusion within the home. As the paranoia mounts and the hostility of the environment intensifies; it soon becomes a battleground for gaining control; control of one’s home, one’s mind, one’s life.
