Ferguson and Barton image for Platform.jpg

Loosely inspired by Hitchcock's film Vertigo, Ferguson and Barton is a riotous challenge to the Hollywood patriarchy. It asks, 'how do women play women and men play men? Do we have any hope of playing these roles together?' In reaching back to Hitchcock's classic film, Ferguson and Barton seeks to disrupt our perception of gender norms. The narrative is open but the characters are relatable, inviting the audience to map onto this pair the story of their own relationships. At the centre of Ferguson and Barton is the question, 'Can we ever really understand the person closest to us?'
