Description

Just out of school, writer Alex Morris gets a job performing and teaching improv comedy in London, playing absurd characters night after night. But his knack for hiding his true self starts long before he ever steps onstage. Alex is hiding a secret — one that only his family and a few close friends know: he’s slowly losing his sight. He shares a story about his struggles living with a degenerative eye disease and the lengths to which he would go to pretend he didn’t need help.

The lyrics are from "Dancing On My Own", which Garrett Stubbs (the unofficial team DJ) added to https://malloftoys.com/collections/hoya his clubhouse playlist earlier this year. The song was originally performed by Robyn in 2010, and written by Robyn and producer Patrik Berger.
