Shadow Theatre presents The Red King’s Dream
Steven Tudor’s life is solitary, logical, and precise and that’s good. He has read and indexed thousands of works from the security of his apartment, visited only by his boss and his best friend. But a chance encounter with an intriguing neighbour sends Stephen’s carefully ordered life through the looking glass and contrary to all rational analysis, the man who thinks too much just might find himself falling in love.
