After being suspected of killing his neighbor’s dog, Christopher sets out to find the true culprit. This journey leads to an “earth-shattering discovery” that will change his life.
The production is designed by Tony Award-winner Bunny Christie and Tony Award-winning video designer Finn Ross, with lighting by Tony Award-winner Paule Constable, choreography by Scott Graham and Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton, sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph, and hair and wig design by David Brian Brown.
