Music for the play Stone City Blue, one of many collaborations with Ed Thomas.

"Winter in a city. Berlin, Paris, Cardiff, Antwerp. It could be anywhere. A stranger. A poet. A drunk. A whore. Four voices. One city. Together till dawn. The end of the story? Or just the beginning?"

"An evocative, jazz-inflected score composed by John Hardy"
Lynne Walker, The Independent, 4 November 2004

"John Hardy's music... [is one of the] integral parts of the narrative"
David Adams,, 15 November 2004

"John Hardy’s often unexpectedly lyrical music works well with Matthew Williams’ brilliantly harsh sound design and frequently it’s difficult to tell one from another."
Victor Hallett, The Stage, 10 November 2004
