Draw Me Close

Draw Me Close blurs the worlds of live performance, virtual reality and animation to create a vivid memoir about the relationship between a mother and her son charting twenty-five years of love, learning and loss . Weaving theatrical storytelling with cutting-edge new forms of technology, the individual immersive experience allows the audience member to take the part of the protagonist, Jordan, inside a live, animated world.

The experience is by award-winning playwright and filmmaker Jordan Tannahill, and is a co-production between the National Film Board of Canada and the National Theatre’s Immersive Storytelling Studio.
