Live at the Duke of York's Theatre

When a family starts to crumble, the son begins to spiral. Nicholas has been ditching school, lying to his family and hiding strange things under his bed. His family are not sure if this is typical adolescent rebellion or should his family be more concerned for his well being?
Nicholas things moving in with his father and his new family might just be the fresh start he needs, but when that doesn’t work he decides that moving back to his mother’s might be the answer.
