Description

George arrives in the city with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Ferociously ambitious and driven by an intoxicating fear of failure, she encounters grotesque characters at every turn, misshapen by the same anxiety. Hungry for relief, George meets J. Who is J? No one knows. But as the city dwellers catch on, they come sniffing like wolves... An exploration into the ever-increasing mental health struggles in education and the workplace. GEORGE showcases stunning choreography and sharp-tongued satire that transports audiences into a world of dangerous ambition.
