‘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.
