Granny has been incarcerated, the fairytale has faltered & now something is Gnawing at Joe.
Selvage (the self securing first and last line of knitting), is a show about unravelling tightly wound modern anxieties and a boy's triumph over his 'gnaw'. It is a creative exploration on themes of charity, self-help and religion, examining the countless avenues people trudge in an effort to make themselves feel calm when deep down remains a ‘gnaw’.
