While washing his car, Samuel Simorgh suddenly finds that he has washed himself of his past. He embarks on a second life, and discovers what his previous career in finance never allowed him to see.

The play is a voyage of discovery – a discovery of others and of the self. Like a return to infancy, Samuel Simorgh swims in the troubled waters of dreams. For the first time he is able to open his eyes to what’s around him.

The Face Washer is an apt allegory of a world that wants to move ever faster in order to be ever more efficient.
