SYNOPSIS

I want you to admire me because I’m good at this.

Because I’m better than you.

Because it will mean I’m worth something.

 

But you shouldn’t because you can do it too.

You shouldn't, because I’m selfish.

Because if you didn’t, maybe I’d stop.

 

Ladies and gentleman, you are invited to a remarkable contest of brains, brawn and brilliance. For your pleasure and entertainment, our contestants will battle it out to claim the top spot in the world’s greatest game show. The stakes could not be higher – in the end, who is most worthy of your admiration?

 

I Want You to Admire Me/But You Shouldn’t is a meditation on life as performance, celebrity worship and the cult of the artist. And we want you to really, REALLY love it.
