The Man Who Woke Up Dead

 A taut thriller, influenced by 1950s film noir and the dystopian worlds of George Orwell. Exploring the divide between fact and fiction, The Man Who Woke Up Dead is a dark, claustrophobic nightmare akin to the thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock, where the truth is just a figment of your imagination. The Man Who Woke Up Dead is the winner of Sale Waterside Centre’s To The Stage commission in 2013 It was selected for Re:play festival and toured nationally in 2014
