Written out of a yearning for connection, “Cyril and Michael” explores the rich histories which intersect upon a chance encounter between two strangers. Over the course of one night as souls struggle to find ways to meaningfully connect, stories of their pasts are swapped, vulnerabilities laid bare, and secrets unveiled. As they spar about race, sexuality, love and heartbreak, they grow to understand each other more deeply, opening up the potential for a profound relationship between them.
In this exploration, they are vulnerable, they are self conscious but also unabashed. They admit their faults, even wear them proudly. This is not a classic dance of deceit, towards seduction. This is the messy, complex, sometimes ugly, yet profoundly beautiful dance of connection.
