Over a full 24 hours, 100 different men, non-binary and queer people are invited to star opposite Ruth Wilson, as she performs over and over a scene between a man and a woman in a relationship that has lost its creativity and romance.

The performance is inspired by John Cassavetes’ film Opening Night with none of the 100 different Martys having met or rehearsed with Ruth Wilson’s Virginia and most of them are non-actors.
