Sara, Tom and Michael are three New Yorkers caught in a secret love triangle that could tear their lives apart. Life has not dealt any of them the cards they wanted, and Sara is stuck in the middle, torn between her downtown past and her uptown future. Is the one that got away really worth risking everything for?

In the true tradition of all great murder ballads, when songs of love-gone-wrong are sung, blood must be spilled. The question is, by whom?

Fresh from a critically acclaimed off-Broadway run, this new musical s a razor-sharp tale of modern relationships, abandoned dreams and treachery in the big city.

“Jordan and Nash's songs are a rock and pop melange and they are often great fun, delivered with brilliant raw roughness. ”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Clever chamber rock musical... plenty of sharp wit and the driving force of a noir thriller... Spot-on performances. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Hamilton-Barritt steals the show... A problematic production, but the blistering performances make you forgive most of its sins.”

Marianka Swain (Broadway World, Arts Desk)

“A weak musical... The superb cast carries it – all four of them have captivating singing voices... The music is great. ”
