San Diego is an epic, disconnected dream narrative or fantasia which takes place inside the playwright’s head in the twenty or so minutes between the announcement that the plane he is on is due to land in San Diego and the plane actually touching down. Set in the year 2000 - A series of stories emerge and wind around each other – the pilot witnesses a stabbing on the streets of San Diego and the repercussions force him to examine his life. His self harming daughter, in a psychiatric hospital, forges a fragile love affair with an ADHD boy. Two illegal immigrants working in America adopt a strange and dangerous boy who has flown to San Diego in the plane’s wheel casings. A team of consultants designing plane interiors want to reinvent the way we fly. A film stars wife decides to become a nun. And in the middle of all of this, the character of the playwright David Greig tries to work out why one of his characters has killed him.
