Gleadall & Mosse’s jazz-swing cabaret Separate Ways gets a fresh outing with a new young cast next month at Camden Fringe, where it’s running for four performances only from 21 to 24 August 2019 at London’s Theatro Technis. Time to get booking!
This one-hour show, presented by Doye Mosse Productions, tells the story of three friends who fall in love in all the possible combinations of two from three – then go their Separate Ways.
London, 2019. Life is tough. Earning a living is REALLY tough.
Emily’s a trainee teacher and works in a bar. Her boyfriend is a dud. She wants to play in a band. Beth is an amazing – but mostly unemployed – actor and singer. She just needs a new direction. Freddie’s an optimist – he thinks everything is going to turn out just fine. But will it?
Emily, Beth and Freddie become friends – become lovers. The three of them are gigging and working, struggling to meet their bills. Emily’s training reaches a crisis. Beth’s life changes forever. Freddie feels stuck on the outside, looking in…
First performed in 2016 at festivals and at the West End’s Criterion Theatre, Separate Ways is a brilliant cabaret musical for three exceptional actor-singers, played here by Arabella Rodrigo (Dusty, Songs for a New World, Zorro, Nine), Sam O’Hanlon (The Simon & Garfunkel Story, Nashville Live) and Michaela Bennison (Romeo & Juliet, In Harm’s Way, The Beggar’s Opera),
Separate Ways – with original music by John Gleadall and book and lyrics by Greg Mosse – will remind you of the great jazz-swing musicals of the 1950s, and will send you out of the theatre uplifted and singing.
