“It was a wrong number that started it.”
When reclusive crime writer Daniel Quinn receives a mysterious phone call from a man seeking a private detective in the middle of the night, he quickly and unwittingly becomes the protagonist in a real-life thriller of his own. He falls under the spell of a strange and seductive woman, who engages him to protect her young husband from his sociopathic father. As the familiar territory of the noir detective genre gives way to something altogether more disturbing and unpredictable, Quinn becomes consumed by his mission, and begins to lose his grip on reality.
Will he be drawn deeper into the abyss, or could the quest provide the purpose and meaning he needs to rebuild his shattered life?
This bold, technically ground-breaking production uses stagecraft, projection, magic and illusion to immerse audiences in the dizzying, disorientating and ultimately transcendental story that helped establish Auster’s reputation as 'one of America’s greatest living novelists' (The Guardian)
