Trying to escape the mundaneness of his work, Chris (Duncan Armstrong) dreams of finding love. He stumbles across a light communicating life form, misunderstandings lead to humorous and playful antics between them as Chris teaches her to speak and soon Fiona materialises into a soulful being.
The work has been inspired by Duncan’s own experiences, his passion for Shakespeare and a love for Disney’s ability to create accessible and multi-generational stories.
Force Field is heartwarming, humourous and will lead audiences to deeply connect with a character played by a man with learning disabilities as he finds love.
