RUNNING TIME/NOTICES: 60mins (no interval)

Twenty-something Spencer is a Geordie millennial who is deeply in love with the inestimable Gabi. But Spencer’s life is torn apart by Gabi’s untimely – and unexplained – death. How can he even begin to cope with finding himself suddenly a prime suspect and a chief mourner?

Themes of outsider grief and loneliness meet black-humour and frank dialogue, exploring male identity, toxic aggression, and how not talking about things can eventually lead to self-destruction.

Ticker will be partnering with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) who are working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). The company will be fundraising throughout the run and aim to use the show to raise awareness for the charity.
