The Old Vic have announced that Jemma Redgrave will play Vanessa in the new production, “Mood Music” which runs from 21 April 2018 to 16 June 2018. Details of the production are below:
‘Music is medication. The elixir of life. It’s for injecting into the blood stream to take away the pain…to promote euphoria…to adrenalise us and give us courage and fortitude.’
In a top London recording studio, a young songwriter, her producer, their lawyers and psychotherapists go to battle over who owns a hit song.
‘I’m not saying he’s a sociopath. I’m just saying you find a lot of damaged people are drawn to the music industry. Lack of empathy, raging narcissism, grandiose egocentricity is expected of them.’
A sly, wry exploration of the dark side of the music industry by the writer of Sunny Afternoon and Blue/Orange, the world premiere of Mood Music by Joe Penhall, is directed by Roger Michell.
You can buy tickets for the production at The Old Vic Website.
