Synopsis


"I mean, where does a person begin and end, and when did they stop being a person?"


London - the present day.


The unidentified body of a young man with fatal head injuries is found face down in a suburban street.


Who is he and where did he come from?


He has no ID and nobody witnessed anything.


It's as if he has just fallen from the sky …


Clinically named as 'John Doe' by the pathologists working on the case, they must uncover the truth and piece his story - and body - back together.


A breakthrough sends DC John Kavura into overdrive and as his investigation unravels, he pieces together a haunting story of our time.


Fiona Doyle's powerful and poignant new play is based on real events and is a Hampstead commission and finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
