Ticker

written and performed by Tom Machell

Ticker follows twenty-something Spencer, 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.
