Synopsis

Directed by: Louise Howlett

Presented by: La Mama Theatre, March 2021

Produced by: ReAction Theatre

God put you here to embody all that’s vile in the hearts of men.

Toby is a social outcast living in a dark and disturbing land. Robbed by his best friend, hounded by the authorities, and branded a gypsy, Toby traverses a difficult path, unearthing more about virtue and honesty than he anticipated.

This classic tale, by award-winning writer Abe Pogos, refocuses and sharpens our thoughts about what it is to be the other in a heartless world.

TOBY was first published in 2004 and explores some of the darker and less impressive aspects of human nature, the so-called ‘dark triad’ of traits - narcissism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism. It tells the poignant and eerily all too familiar tale of how individuals in positions of power can manipulate public perceptions and erode culture from the inside out.
