sneak preview of new show
'Elephant' goes to sleep
The Elephant and Castle pilot tour has now finished and Lilly and I were so happy with the outcome. We now have a show that we want to continue taking around the country, telling people about parasomnias, entertaining them with songs and giving them little glimpses of our relationship.
For the future of the show, it has been selected to be part of China Plate's Bite Size Festival this October, where we will present a 20 minute segment in front of programmers and producers.
The plans are to take it to Edinburgh 2018 then an Autumn tour to 15 dates. The show says "Good night for now. I go Sleeeeeeepy Bye Byes".
Lilly and I did wilderness
Lillian and I's show Elephant and Castle was programmed at Wilderness Festival, as part of Camden People's Theatre All The Right Notes. We filled up the 300 seater room, the show went really well, and we got a great four star review in The Stage.
'This year's Wilderness also features an exciting programme of new work from Camden People's Theatre. Saturday's highlight is Elephant and Castle (★★★★) by Tom Adams and Lillian Henley. A bijou musical about Adams' parasomnia, it is tightly, freshly executed. Paisley pyjamaed, Adams and Henley chart the progress of their relationship and the science behind parasomnia through songs. These are often jolly and Bill Bailey-esque, but some are surprisingly haunting – parasomnia can be a frightening thing to deal with. Henley's extraordinary voice and the pair's distinctive, appealing onstage chemistry make this show.'
I also shot a short video at Wilderness of a swing chair carousel for your delectation
