Lock and Key

A spine-tingling new musical – what would you sacrifice for success?

A spine-tingling new musical from Barlow & Smith, directed by Adam Lenson.

It’s late. Laura should really be going – after all, she’s missing her own birthday party. But her demanding boss Samantha has insisted she stay to review the marketing proofs of the publishing firm’s disgustingly cheery children’s title, ‘Giggles The Bear’. And left the keys to her mysterious, red filing cabinet…

Alone in the eerie office, Laura can’t resist the temptation of peering into Samantha’s secret files. After making a grisly discovery, Laura must choose how much she is willing to sacrifice in the name of ‘success’.

Brimming with twisted dark humour, LOCK AND KEY is a rollercoaster of thrills and chills, for audiences all too aware of the painful demands of modern career success.

Presented by Warehouse Musical Productions.
