A terrifyingly focused man of many talents, passports and identities arrives in the broken heart of England, a haunted Midlands town that has collapsed into a black hole of dreams, only to discover that this new territory is at least as strange and dangerous as he. While trying to locate a particular person and artifact for his insistent client, he finds himself in a quicksand world of dead Lotharios, comatose sleeping beauties, voodoo mobsters, masked adventurers, unlikely 1930s private detectives and violent chiaroscuro women. … Northhampton if it is still awake. As soon as the city closes its eyes, another world is going on beneath the trembling eyelids, a world of glittering and sinister delirium far worse than any social or economic devastation. Welcome to the British nightmare, with its beautiful flesh, its tinsel and its luminescent monsters for light entertainment; it is hallucinatory sobriety. Welcome to the show.

The show starring Tom Burke, Siobhan Hewlett, Ellie Bamber, Sheila Atim, Christopher Fairbank and Alan Moore. It is slated for a US theatrical release for just one night on August 26.
