a Video Game Musical
STAGES is a new musical by Christian Czornyj that shares the story a family coming to terms with their diagnosis of cancer, and how they deal with the stages of loss that accompanies it.
Told through the lens of their autistic son, (who is obsessed with video games) we experience the show as if playing an old arcade game - making choices, giving hints, and ultimately deciding if we want to continue.
The show is still early on in its development, but plans to have a full workshop later this year (2019). The song 'Glitched' from the show featured as part of Signal 5 at the Hospital Club, London in February 2019
