An Ordinary Person is about the destructive nature of victimhood. At 35 years old, Louise has gained sufficient spiritual strength to find and confront her birth parents, Aggie and Topher. She wants to hold them to account for what she considers to be her tortured life. In another part of the city, 25 year old Nathan senses his long-time girlfriend, Fiona, is planning to leave. Prompted by the threat of loneliness, Nathan puts down the bong and, spurred on by a relieved Fiona, begins to turn his dream of becoming a landscape gardener into a reality.
Louise’s arrival fractures Aggie and Topher’s tight little existence and sets Topher on a deadly collision course with Nathan. The meeting between these two men, one carrying the burdens of unresolved trauma, the other with a sexuality that can no longer be suppressed, ends in violence and death. Who is the real victim? Who will justice serve? Could an ordinary person, in Nathan’s position, lose self-control and form the intent to kill? An Ordinary Person invites its audience to become a social juror and find their own answers to these difficult questions.
