Who would you be if you forgot who you were And who are we without our memories Are we just a bunch of chemicals sloshing aroundDonny wakes up in hospital, desperate to see his partner Emma and not understanding why she hasn't come to see him yet.
Soon he realises he's forgotten something. Something important. Donny still sees the world as the person he used to be three years ago, when his life was in a very different place. Rona Munro's play Donny's Brain is a bittersweet tale about forgetting love and losing yourself.
Delving deep into the convoluted and eternal mysteries of the human brain, it follows Donny and Emma's painfully funny and emotional journey of recovery and rediscovery, throwing into question all they thought they knew about love and loss. It is premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in April 2020 (an earlier workshop production was staged at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 2012).
