Infinity Land

"Mama had a baby and her head popped off...do you know that one?"

J is building a city.

A city made of fabric, tarps, curtains, table cloths and careful stitching.

Something that's stretching into the woods,

Growing and breathing.

Kidnapped and held captive in a tent for 17 years, J seems to finally be trying to make sense of the ordeal.

Or perhaps that's just what she's telling us.

It's hard to tell, she just keeps building.

Either way, something's screaming from inside.

She's telling us it's angels.

Based on the case of Jaycee Dugard.

Following the success of 'Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm?" ★★★★★ "Infinity Land" is Somna Theatre Co's companion piece on their true-crime series. An unflinching, gut-wrenching piece about female trauma, the alienation of motherhood, and how we physically manifest our losses.

a good mother brings home wherever she goes.

There’s a man in the woods, did your mother ever tell you that?”

There is a limit to how much you can love your child.

Russell knows that now.

Desperately trying to piece together the warning signs surrounding his alienated son Dean, Russell dives further and further into reliving the mess his son’s made. Hiding in a storm drain in the Nebraskan woods, he begins to see the extent of his neglect. Too bad it’s too late.how far a parent can be tested; can they still forgive their own child if the world no longer sees them as human?

As Russell learns,

Sometimes you can’t.
