Auditions:  2020 Musical & Play

A double parlour game in which we do not smell a rat until too late – before guessing the killer's name, we are invited to guess who is going to be killed.

Towards Zero is a multi-layered, nail-biting thriller. The play probes the psychology of jealousy in the shadow of a savage and brutal murder with piercing intelligence. A carefully unpeeled investigation before our eyes brings the story to a pointed ending.
