Written by Sarah Henley, with music and lyrics by Tim Prottey-Jones and Tori Allen-Martin, Muted is a  new musical about grief, guilt, self-discovery, forgiveness and love.

Muted tells the story of Michael Brookman, an exceptional young musician whose band was on the brink of stardom, until his mother was suddenly killed in a hit and run accident. Since then he hasn’t uttered a word.
 
The show picks up Michael’s story three years after the accident. Michael lives largely in the past, re-running his teenage years in his mind. He is under the care of his frustrated, stock-broker young uncle who plans on moving to Singapore, and would like the ‘situation’ to just go away.
 
Lauren, Michael’s ex-girlfriend, has now hooked up with Jake, Michael’s ex-band-mate. Jake has pursued the band since the accident and finally has another shot at the big-time. But there’s one catch: The record label want Michael back as the frontman.

Playwright Sarah Henley said: “I’m incredibly excited that a full-scale production of Muted is going to be mounted at this ambitious new venue which is perfect for such a character driven, psychological piece. After four years of development I think that Muted feels incredibly raw and real.’

The production is directed by Jamie Jackson and will star: David Leopold, Edd Campbell Bird, Tori Allen-Martin, Jos Slovick , Helen Hobson and  Mark Hawkins.
