Serendipity Productions Presents –

Written by Gavin Kayner

"Identity Crisis is a fresh new look at the human

condition – off the rails and thoroughly entertaining." V. Flynn


"An evocative, provocative exploration of personal identities –

those buried, forgotten, neglected and even stolen. Entirely

entertaining.' M. Hector


"The characters in Identity Crisis provide us with insights, wisdom

and delightful humor." E. Vought


"Wonderfully weird and totally enjoyable." S. Flynn


Imagine losing your identity. Your sense of self. Your place in the world. Would that be blessing or a curse? Would it free or cripple you? The five characters in Identity Crisis grapple with this question and others as they confront one another in the care home where they live. Out of these confrontations, the characters learn more about who they are – and who they are not. Surprises abound and the ending may well take your breath away.
