Who are we when we are with someone else?
The characters in This Person Is Not That Person include mismatched flatmates, long-married couples, and mothers and daughters - all dealing with the fallout, fractures and misunderstandings of human relationships. They are ordinary people - flawed, slightly off-kilter - trying to work out what's real.
