Score

Returning to London after a run at the Royal Festival Hall, Score cascades through time to tell the story of Hannah and Kirsty, two childhood friends who’ve been through everything together; nativity plays, playground fights, teen pregnancy, rubbish boyfriends, heroin addiction, missing dogs, and motherhood. There’s been some shit, that’s for sure – but then there’s the singing. You harmonize best with someone you know, you know? No matter what they put you through.

 

Directed by Stephanie Kempson (The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil ★★★★, The Fix), and with musical arrangements by Verity Standen (★★★★★ HUG, Time Out), Score features a capella songs and is inspired by the frank and often funny accounts of parents from Bournemouth Drug and Alcohol Team about addiction, recovery and how they got their kids back.

 

“Cunningly constructed and gloriously sung.” Lyn Gardner, Guardian
