Publicity copy

We are backstage. We are offstage. We are standing in the wings of the story. We are inviting you to help us to remember. We are pretending to be characters in a musical. We are pretending to be ourselves. We are pretending to be each other.

Award-winning writer and performance maker Michael Pinchbeck takes his parents on tour to recreate the post-show party where they met in 1970 after an amateur dramatic version of The Sound of Music. His mum was a nun. His Dad was a Nazi.

Mixing text from the past and present with movement to the real-time soundtrack of The Sound of Music, Michael Pinchbeck asks what is present and what is absent, what is professional and what is amateur. The Post Show Party Show receives its UK premiere after a sell-out performance at Springdance in Utrecht, Holland.

Produced by Spiel and supported by Dance 4, Nottingham.
