A new British Pop-Rock Musical featuring the songs of Tim Prottey-Jones. Edgy, fast paced, sexy and raw. After The Turn, is a story about grief, guilt, self-discovery, forgiveness, and that thing we just can’t do without; love.
At seventeen, Michael Brookman was the exceptionally talented lead singer of Lost Boy, a band on the brink of stardom, when his mother, (Amanda) was killed in a hit and run accident. Having been brought up solely by the extremely protective Amanda, his devastation at her loss was made even worse by his deep sense of guilt; the last time he saw her they had had a huge row about his then girlfriend, Lauren.
Fast forward three years. Michael hasn’t uttered a word since Amanda’s death. He locked his teenage self into a far corner of his mind and only allows him to speak inside his head. He has pushed away all of his friends, including Lauren, who has ended up in a relationship with another member of the band, who once was Michael's best friend, Wolf. His uncle who is notionally responsible for him is at his wits end. Something has to be done.
Michael’s uncle calls on Lauren to try and bring him back out of himself. Wolf encourages this as, working for a major record label, he has designs on signing a big money deal with Michael.
Lauren reluctantly agrees. Through the story, Michael’s past is gradually revealed and his time spent with Lauren slowly reawakens buried emotion, in both of them.
