The Musicians

The Orange Box Studio Theatre, Halifax

March 2016

West Yorkshire Playhouse

May 2016

The orchestra  of Ridley Road, a state school, is to give a concert in Moscow at the  European Festival of Youth, playing Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony before  an audience of cultural bigwigs. But their instruments have been  impounded by Customs. Can Alex, the Russian boy who cleans the hall (and  is a devout Pinball Wizard fan) come up with a plan to save the  situation?

Written by Patrick Marber for the National Theatres's new writing programme, National Theatre Connections.
