The Southwark Playhouse has launched “Southwark Stayhouse” with a trio of shows o view online, the highlight of which is WASTED, the brilliant new rock musical about the Bronte sisters.
Yes, that’s what I said. It didn’t sound like my cup of tea, to be frank, but I went along with an open mind and…it blew me away. A uniformly strong cast told the Brontes story through music in a style which brought them roaring up to date with a real in-your face quality.
I knew that it had to reappear sometime, but I didn’t think that it would happen like this. Now. and for free.
Directed by Adam Lenson, with music by Christopher Ash, book and lyrics by Carl Miller, and produced by the impeccable trio of Sally Humphreys, Oli Sones and Jason Haigh-Ellery, WASTED is a total shock to the system that works like a dream. Enjoy!
Although this production is free to watch, please strongly consider making a donation to the Southwark Playhouse to enable it to reopen its doors after this crisis has passed.
