Part of Musical Rewrites | Sheep Soup Productions | Fat RascalTwo comic and brutally honest musicals from Sheep Soup Productions and winners of the 2016 Eddies Award, Fat Rascal. A night of remembering the 90s and old friends, and a crash course in the history of the vibrator.
A double bill of new musical theatre. Join us for a brand new scratch work-in-progress and a fully-formed all-singing, all-dancing new production.
Sheep Soup Productions
Following the sudden death of Jodie, occasional gig reviewer and the definition of misadventure, some of her friends join forces in a Nottingham community recording studio. Local singer-songwriter Hayley has penned a song for Jodie, and the makeshift band meets to record the single for charity.
However the situation quickly escalates as the group disagree about what Jodie would have wanted, and the real reasons why they’ve come together. Memorial? Alleviating guilt? A support group in musical form? School friend Angie had drifted away and is back to find closure. Yaz helped Jodie recapture her rebellious youth but craved a deeper connection. Russ wants to find out how much their fleeting romance meant. Jim is just trying to keep the group’s creative ambitions on track.
The Leftovers is a comic and stirring contemporary musical about the pitfalls of artistic interpretation from Sheep Soup Productions, graduates of Nottingham’s BAFTA award winning Television Workshop.
Winner of the 2016 Eddies Award, the sellout hit BUZZ returns; a hilarious musical journey through the history of the vibrator and a brutally honest story of a singleton’s quest to fall back in love with herself. Sex Ed just got a revamp.
