A brand new British musicalMuted tells the story of Michael Brookman, an exceptional young musician whose band was on the brink of stardom, until his mother was suddenly killed in a hit and run accident. Since then he hasn’t uttered a word.
The show picks up Michael’s story three years after the accident. Michael lives largely in the past, re-running his teenage years in his mind. He is under the care of his frustrated, stock-broker young uncle who plans on moving to Singapore, and would like the ‘situation’ to just go away.
Lauren, Michael’s ex-girlfriend, has now hooked up with Jake, Michael’s ex-band-mate. Jake has pursued the band since the accident and finally has another shot at the big-time. But there's one catch: The record label want Michael back as the frontman.
Jake persuades Lauren to help recruit Michael, but their reunion unearths long-forgotten feelings. As uncomfortable truths force their way out into the open, we are left wondering whether some cracks are just too big to paper over.
