We'd like to tell you what it's about or who the characters are - there's just one problem: we won't know until the audience tells us. Will it be a space adventure with atomic schoolmarms? Or perhaps a medical drama plagued by runaway rhinos? There's only one way to find out - come to the show and tell us which way to go!
