ZERO

(in development)

ZERO is a musical of unfortunate relevance to our times. Nuclear Weapons are once again on our headlines and loom as one of the greatest threats to our species. ZERO takes form through a dense web of non-linear songs and scenes inspired by the physics, politics and moral arguments related to nuclear weapons, intended to educate, inspire and motivate audiences to believe that a world free from nuclear weapons is not just possible but necessary. These scenes are woven together through the journey of a young girl who, within the noiseless flash of the bomb in Hiroshima, witnesses the entire story of what has taken her life. Above all, ZERO emits a strong sense of love, forgiveness and solidarity, and reveals the humanity hidden within the story of weapons of mass destruction.


Showcase

(August - December 2017)

The 1901 Arts Club, London (December 2017)

The Scottish Arts Club, Edinburgh (August 2017)

Following the success of my showcase in Edinburgh I was funded by the Scottish Arts Club Charitable Trust to perform a similar showcase at the 1901 Arts Club in London.

In August 2017 I showcased my work with two intimate evenings of music at The Scottish Arts Club, Edinburgh.  At these shows I performed a full concert version of my musical A Gentleman's Game (see below), songs I have written this year for various potential projects and a couple of tributes to my greatest influences. 

Inevitable inspired by characters from Orange Is The New Black. Performed by Gemma McLennan and Kathryn Salmond at the Scottish Arts Club, Edinburgh.
