In October of 1966, James McKenzie, frontman and songwriter for the insanely popular band The Grooves, suddenly and accidentally, died. In order to cover up his death from their fans and the general public, and from a warning of national safety from MI6, Grooves management covered up James’s death and replaced him with a stand-in, Will Peers. 

This play follows how the band recovers from this loss while following Will’s descent into delusion as he becomes his deceased predecessor.

This piece is to be presented as an audio play paired with an original, psychedelic score and visuals.

An adaptation of the Paul is Dead conspiracy theory.
