After receiving great reviews and due to public demand new British musicals Public Domain and The Fabulist Fox Sister are to get two extra weeks of encore streaming at Southwark Playhouse from today to Sunday 31 January!
The Fabulist Fox Sister
“People want to believe in something. Why not this?”
New York, 1892: Kate Fox, the woman who inadvertently invented séances is holding her last one. A final audience gathers in her apartment to watch as she conjures the ghosts of her two sisters to tell the story of their lives and the religion they accidently began.
Loosely inspired by the loosely true story of Kate Fox, ‘The Fabulist Fox Sister’ is a silly, scathing and sardonic one-person musical inspired by our own era of approximate truth.
In this world premiere conceived entirely for multi-camera streaming, the role of Kate is played by Michael Conley who also wrote the book and lyrics. This won’t be the first time he’s played to an empty room, though it will be the first time it’s intentional!
Directed by Adam Lenson with music by Luke Bateman and book and lyrics by Michael Conley ‘The Fabulist Fox Sister’ delivers the magic of live theatre… but with more legroom and cheaper drinks!
‘Public Domain’, a dark, verbatim musical about ‘authenticity’ online, written and performed by Francesca Forristal and Jordan Paul Clarke, is produced and directed by Adam Lenson.
It takes words spoken and typed on the internet in the past year to build a unique portrait of the digital world that is every bit as mesmerising as it is terrifying.
This high-adrenaline, electronic thrill ride is made entirely from the words of YouTube vloggers, Instagram influencers, Facebook’s tech giants, and everyday internet users. A dark, funny, verbatim musical about the internet: those who own it; those who live in it; and you. It’s like ‘Black Mirror’ but real, and set to music.
The show follows two teenage influencers; Millie (sporty spice, health guru, buddha bowls – millennial) and Z (GCSEs, existential dread, swag – generation Z), as well as giving you exclusive ‘footage’ of inside Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan’s family home. You’re gonna get their honest, true, authentic selves… but online… with some serious bass, obvs. Authentic, right?
