Nadine is a video artist - a video interventionist, really. She goes out and about wearing a T-shirt with "I am in your video' on it and interposes herself into other people's films. Then an art tycoon buys her 'work' for fifteen thousand dollars, her boyfriend goes ballistic and things really start to get absurd. "Someone Else's Shoes" is a sharp satire on the commodification of art and of much of the rest of our lives, played out amongst some very believable characters and equipped with smart and witty dialogue. Suitably, it will premiere at the trendy Soho Theatre - just up from the Groucho Club - and then go on tour, courtesy of English Touring Theatre.
