‘As funny as it’s intellectual, this page-turner about crashing and burning is spot-on about ambition, infatuation, theatre, film, ethics, teens, and everything else.’

We Play Ourselves

When Cass – a thirty something year old queer playwright – receives a prestigious award, it seems as though her career is finally taking off. That is until she finds herself at the centre of a searing public shaming. Fleeing New York, Cass moves to L.A. to start anew.

Once there, she is pulled into the orbit of her charismatic neighbour, a filmmaker who’s making an ethically murky documentary inspired by a group of teenage girls and their underground fight club. But just as Cass begins to dream of a comeback, the past starts to catch up with her and she is forced once more to reckon with her ambition and the chaos it creates.

We Play Ourselves is a darkly funny novel about the cost of making art, and the art of making enemies.
