Ticker follows twenty-something Spencer, a Geordie millennial who is deeply in love with the inestimable Gabi. But Spencer's life is torn apart by Gabi's untimely " and unexplained " death. How can he even begin to cope with finding himself suddenly a prime suspect and a chief mourner? Themes of outsider grief and loneliness meet black humour and frank dialogue, exploring male identity, toxic aggression and how not talking about things can eventually lead to self-destruction. Written and performed by Tom Machell, and directed and developed by Derek Anderson. 'Machell is outstanding' ***** (NewYorkTheatreGuide.com).
