Performed to acclaim in Cork, Dublin and New York, Mimic is a poetic and extraordinarily prescient solo performance about a culture in economic and spiritual freefall. It is about Julian Neary who becomes a professional mimic and leaves home to get away from the culture and family life of 1980s Ireland; and about what he finds when he returns home years later. A dark satire on imitation, authenticity, and what happens to a nation that leaves its heritage behind.
