Buckle started writing the script but felt that without the rights to the music he was plagiarizing and stopped. He soon got in touch with Depeche Mode's manager, J.D. Fenger, who liked the idea and gave him the green light to continue writing. The story follows two boys who experienced abuse and how they discover love.
"Depeche Mode are not Abba or Queen," Buckle told the Times of Malta. "The story can't be a happy one."
The Unifaun Theatre have been known for their controversial productions, and this one will be no different. "Well, I'm not going to invite my grandmother to this musical ... and, yes, it will push boundaries," Buckle said. "But I don't do plays because they are controversial. I do them because they're quality productions, which are relevant to the local scenario."
Casting for the musical will begin on June 27.
