Steve is a friendly but ultimately performative guy who keeps his cards close. Tired of feeling lonely, he signs up to a backstreet medical experiment designed to ‘find yourself’. Using advanced technology, a suspect doctor hooks his mind up to a computer, meeting extreme personifications of all the disparate parts of his psyche: from playful to anger to loneliness, in an attempt to understand him. The doctor is revealed to be harvesting such complex personalities and with only one hour allowed in the mind by the technology (shown by a countdown looming on projection), the audience has to find out: Who is the real Steve? Can he escape his own mind? Will the qLab work?

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,         Enwrought with golden and silver light,        The blue and the dim and the dark cloth        Of night and light and the half-light,        I would spread the cloths under your feet:        But I, being poor, have only my dreams;        I have spread my dreams under your feet;        Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.        Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven by W.B. Yeats, 1899
