What happens when someone tells you that you're the answer to the riddle of life?
What happens when a stranger in Starbucks gives you something that will change your world forever?
What happens if the world starts to fall asleep, hour by hour?

A haunting journey fusing drama and live music, City Stories is a new type of Cabaret Drama, a sequence of interwoven love stories and a love letter to London.

Written and directed by award-winning playwright James Phillips (The Rubenstein Kiss, McQueen) and with original music composed by singer-songwriter Rosabella Gregory (winner of New York Songwriter's Circle Song Contest), City Stories is a magical journey through a magical city.
