Pilot co-produced Looking For JJ in partnership with Unicorn Theatre, London and York Theatre Royal. We opened the national tour in York in autumn 2007 and went on to a five week run to 25th November 2007 at Unicorn Theatre. The spring tour concluded on 14th March 2008 at The Haymarket, Basingstoke.
