Tone. Dial. Ring.
When a Professor answers an apparently random phone call that seems eerily pertinent to their own life, decade-long feuds are uncovered and old wounds are prised open. In a race against the clock to save their family and their job, the Professor hares across the quad from the library, to the lecture hall to the gymnasium attempting to uncover whodunnit and why.
Multi-award winners Spies Like Us present an action-packed physical thriller about connection and forgiveness on the grand old grounds of a 1970s university campus.
We are currently developing the show further following a Work in Progress at VAULT Festival 2020 and hope to tour it soon when it is safe to do so.
