‘Luxury is our future. Identity Services. We will change what we do. We will change who we are. We will change…everyone.’

Simone Macdonald is an old-school police detective in a ‘brave new world’, Arisha Adler is a rising political star destined for Downing Street and Phillip Blackthorn is the founder of Legacy, a tech company which promises to change everything. Forever.

These three powerful personalities find their lives turned upside down when a boy’s body is discovered on a river bank. Despite the use of new ground-breaking forensic technology there remains one problem… the boy doesn’t exist. As Simone investigates she finds herself in an increasingly unsettling world where nothing is what it seems and no-one can be trusted.

Happy Valley meets Black Mirror in this new play which raises questions of life, love and what we leave behind.

Max Card holders can get up to two free children with a full paying adult. For more information visit the Access page.
