Lying In The Gutters – 30th April 2012

Pitch: The Singing Detective meets The Marvel Universe. In the nineteen sixties, a number of patients are undergoing an experimental treatment to deal with serious exposure to radiation. A young student bitten by a radioactive spider, a scientist who survived a gamma nuclear blast, four astronauts affects by cosmic rays, a blind lawyer who was affected at a young age and more. The treatment, while working, creates wild hallucinations – and somehow those hallucinations are shared. Almost as if there were a continuity between them.
