About the Show Less...

Simon Stephens' bold new drama about crime and redemption. Read More >

Country Music tells a story of crime and redemption. Starting at the mouth of the River Thames and moving across England over twenty years. It begins with a life choice for Jamie Carris and ends with a re-union with his young daughter. It is also a story about a killer.

Aspects of County Music have been inspired by interviews with current serving inmates.

Simon Stephens’  previous plays at The Royal Court are Bluebird and Herons. He recently had a brace of his plays (Christmas and One Minute) performed at The Bush.
