Jason is delighted to announce an event-packed autumn!
He has composed incidental music for The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark at the Unicorn Theatre. This is suitable for very small children aged 2-6, so why not introduce your favourite small people to theatre with some lovely cello music, recorded by the incomparable Andrea Hess?
Then we come to my autumn’s main event - a ‘developmental production’ of my and Ashley Robinson’s new musical Lockhart, performed by Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts students at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in North London. It’s a ‘Southern Gothic’ story, and a completely original musical. We’re very excited about the piece and by the wonderful young talents performing it. A first-rate creative team is helmed by Broadway’s Matt Cowart.
Please come and support new writing!
