From award-winning immersive theatre company, Outside the March, this is a story of four neurodiverse brothers told through a theatrical escape into the art and science of piano tuning. It is impossible to perfectly tune a piano – something that musician and theatre maker James Smith knows all too well. A few years ago James taught himself how to tune pianos as an additional source of income between gigs and discovered something even more valuable – the perfect metaphor through which to process the mental complexities of his family and their lifelong journeys with OCD, autism, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. James shares the story of his family while getting the piano in front of him beautifully and imperfectly in tune.
