String – the Musical
with John Bowler, narrator.
"Take a town - any town"
String – the Musical is a brand new, specially-commissioned musical set in the East Sussex market town of Hailsham and the surrounding area.
String takes the intertwining ropemaking process - a key Hailsham industry - as its central theme and binds together different strands of time into a central love story that runs through one Hailsham woman's life. A blend of music in the style of the First World War, Sixties pop and contemporary love songs, it's highly suitable for young and old audiences alike.
If you are at a loose end this March - you'll love being tied up with String!
The creative team includes Brighton-based writer and lyricist, Stephen Plaice, one of Britain’s leading librettists and writers for Music Theatre. The music is by Tony Biggin, a popular and successful composer who lives in Hailsham.
John Bowler has appeared in many notable Theatre productions including A Patriot for Me at the RSC, and the critically acclaimed Popcorn UK Tour. John’s numerous television credits include DCI Banks, WPC56, Casualty, and a long running character in The Bill.
