The play concerns the Bradley Quartet, a music group preparing to perform their first concert in America. As soon as they arrive in New York, tensions rise to the surface. The first violinist and founder of the group, James Bradley, feels increasingly threatened by second violinist Hal, while cellist Beth agrees to give music lessons to a major rock star. Lanigan is a writer for the BBC and the author of the novels Stretch 29 and The Chancers.
The creative team includes Andrew Layton (sets), Jennifer Caprio (costumes), Marcus Doshi (lighting), and Bart Fasbender (sound). Charlton previously directed Demon Dreams and The Witching Hour at Williamstown and is the founder and curator of the Director's Lab at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in New York.
