Once, you were a fisherman. 
Maybe the best fisherman in Brighton, until the fish disappeared. At first you thought perhaps it was a spell of bad luck, but as the months went on, you feared they were gone forever. 
It’s been two years since the fish left, along with your fiancé Elena. But this morning you found a hastily scribbled parchment stuffed beneath your door. Something is terribly wrong. It had no signature, just meet me at our theatre. 
You must find out who wrote it, and why.
