The Strange Death of John Doe

From 25 May – 30 June 2018

Hampstead Theatre

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.
