A new play from Theatre Caddis


One dashing detective. One massive myth. One seriously fatally murdered murdered family.

This sensational and timely thriller explores masculinity, injustice and the trials faced by those less fortunate today.


The MAN detective Jayson is confronted with the task of solving an unusual murder of mythical proportions, can he do it? Will his toxic masculinity give him strength or leave him in ancient ruins along with the city of London. 


The POLICE is the civil force for the prevention and detection of crime  and the home of detective Jayson's job. Cells, offices and files so many files all of which Detective Jayson holds close to his heart. 


The MYTH is on the run. How do you stop something greater, more powerful than you. How do you stop yourself?


Owen Zeal plays dashing and deluded detective in his first theatre production brought to you as part of "the best things start somewhere" project. Writer and double fringe first winner Eleanor Zeal is reunited with her son Owen for his stage debut.


Directed by Louis Chan, a British writer/director and North West London native. Chan wrote and directed the short film Stationary (2020). Stationary won Best Film at the Performance Short Film Awards.
