This time in Washington DC with The Shakespeare Theatre Company and set in a DC newsroom.

Had an absolute riot with Simon Godwin and the whole team at the STC in glorious DC. This is the third time I’ve scored this play but this production feels as fresh as ever. Runs at the Sidney Harman Hall from Nov 11th – Dec 11th.
