Synopsis

A piece of music theatre about the need for attention, the love of conflict, the pleasure of watching and the fun of pretending to be 'truthful'.

A 'JUNK OPERA' that looks with warmth and humour at the loneliness of spectator culture and the seductive power of reality TV and the new celebrity. A sort of 'Big Brother - The Musical'! The production will be developed in Scotland and draw largely on Scottish young people.

Peta Lily has an international reputation for her physical theatre work, especially with David Glass. Composer Jimmy Jewell has worked extensively in music theatre (currently composing NHS-The Musical for Theatre Royal, Plymouth) as well as popular music, touring with Alice Cooper, Roger Daltrey, Billy Preston and Kele Le Roc. Andy Howitt is the Artistic Director of Scotland's Youth dance agency, YDance. The piece will be shown as a work in progress at the Edinburgh Festival.
