- Everything in Colour
"It's 1997 and the UK is swinging again. Cool Britannia is everywhere: fashion, music and politics; from the arrival of Brit-pop and Blur vs. Oasis, from Tracey Emin's dirty bed to Ginger Spice in 'that dress', Times were optimistic, loud and brash with everyone 'mad for it'.
Set in the Brit-pop heartland of Camden and on the eve of that landslide general election, Everything in Colour tells the story of Perry, a young, struggling musician who with his band Nude Idol is up against it for recognition and entering into a competition that promises the winner fame and fortune.
Over that warm, spring night friendships are tested, lovers are lost and nerves are frayed. Will it be the night that Perry gets his golden ticket and the happy ever after he's been waiting for?
Everything in Colour is a bombastic fairytale of a musical that celebrates the fire of youth, the warmth of friendship and exposes the aftermath of fame and fortune in this growing world of celebrity.
This original script and score has a feisty, playful style which stirs the youth and drive in all of us.... and reminds us that sometimes all you need is good mates and big dreams!"
Book and Lyrics by Leighton Carter.
