a dark side. Exactly how much of a free reign they give
their dark sides defines their alignment, so to speak.
The freer reign they give them the darker their shade
of grey, because if we have a dark side we also have
a lighter side to offset it. Imagine what would happen
if you could split a person into two distinct halves,
one which comprises all the good that is in us, our
aspirations, our dreams, our hopes, our loves, our Light
side. The other comprises all our deepest fears, our
angers, our biases, our hatreds, and our Dark side.
The title of our play is taken from the Biblical meaning
of Ishmael, where it means outcast. Call Me Ishmael
hence refers to the injustice of treating people who
are 'different' by our society's standard, like the
immates of an asylum….outcasts. Call me outcast, that
is what they proclaim for that is what we have made
them. Society's children, yet not of us anymore.
Call me Ishmael takes you deep into the psyche of a
person suffering from a psychological disorder, which
splits his personality into a Light side by the name
of Adam and a Dark side by the name of Ishmael. In our
play you get to view the world through both the eyes
of Good and the eyes of Evil and you get to see how
such Good and Evil affects those around them and how
either extreme survives in a world that exists in shades
Your mind is a prison.
Imagine if you could be free
