Lost In Music
A unique theatrical experience, as beautiful as it is moving.★★★★ The Scotsman
Text by Nicholas Bone | Music by Kim Moore
Songs by Kim Moore, Alex Neilson, Jill O'Sullivan, Emily Phillips and Claire Willoughby.
Lost in Music is a gig-theatre show inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice: the story of a talented musical couple’s journey to hell and back.
It’s a tale about the power of music which has been told and retold for thousands of years; in Lost in Music, it’s told using the voices of young musicians, telling us what music means to them and how it informs their lives, friendships and sense of self.
Lost in Music is performed by a multi-talented ensemble including Robin Campbell, Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells, Alex Rex) and Jill O’Sullivan (Sparrow and the Workshop, Jill Lorean, bdy_prts)
We're lost in music, No turning back.
