I See You
A disengaged stay-at-home dad and an apocalyptically anxious mom meet in this illicit rom com that spins out of control. In a world headed for disaster, what are the rules?
“I See You is really about the psychic and emotional stress of living in the cusp of the apocalypse – which is sort of where we are,” says Robin who is returning to The Flea for her second production following The Light Outside.
