Some description

Edgar and Annabel are living a lie, a lie that could save their country. From “one of Britain’s most promising young playwrights” (The Independent) and directed by Studio favorite Holly Twyford, this dark and cheeky look at what the future might hold features undercover agents, surveillance algorithms, and explosive karaoke.

2ndStage is Studio’s playground for emerging artists, offering innovative and thrillingly eclectic programming with shorter rehearsal periods and smaller budgets than our other productions, with a spirit of exuberance and experiment.


A cool, smart show.

This kind of meticulously choreographed, uninterrupted action is the very nature of live theater... Riveting... imaginative.
