About Legacy:

‘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 a new ground-breaking forensic technology there remains one problem… the boy doesn’t exist.

As Simone investigates this, the most unusual case of her career, she finds herself in an uncreasingly unsettling world where nothing is what it seems and no-one can be trusted. The mysterious crime buried in a blur of media manipulation, internet celebrity and wrapped in a box which makes anything possible. 

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