Hoax My Lonely Heart - a heartbreaking musical based on a true story of a fatal relationship with schizophrenia – comes to The Studio at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre from Wednesday to Saturday.

A dark piece of theatre – fuelled by love and self-sabotage – the story centres on Rob, a young man who struggles to find the right words, and Helen, the woman who loves him.

It is a collaboration between award-winning writer Ravi Thornton, award-winning director Benji Reid and critically-acclaimed composer Minute Taker and is based on a poem written by Ravi Thornton’s younger brother Roabbi, or Rob, who committed suicide in 2008 at the age of 31.
