    World Premiere
    Tromolo Productions in co-production with Tron Theatre

    Jake owns a recording studio. He’s been recording the same album with the same band for the past fifteen years. Everyone else gets the breaks. But Jake still has a ticket in the music industry lottery and unbeknown to him a potential windfall could be heading his way. He might just have to make a few... compromises.

    Inspired by the research of musicologist and human rights campaigner Professor Morag J. Grant into the use of music as means of torture in political conflict. Music Is Torture is a jet-black comedy set in Limbo Recording Studios, featuring live music and new songs from A Band Called Quinn. / @TromProductions
