Directed by Andy Bewley (recently AD Blue Heart Orange Tree and Tobacco Factory) in a mock Victorian theatre, originally built as a film set within Sands Films Studio - an independent film production facility operating in a C18 listed building in Rotherhithe since 1975 (The Children's Midsummer Night's Dream, Little Dorrit, The Good Soldier Schwejk).
#blessed - a spoken word cabaret features an eclectic mix of musical theatre, from Sondheim's 'Not A Day Goes By' to 'Waving Through a Window' from hit broadway musical, Dear Evan Hansen.
These act as a counterpoint to Martha Pothen's original poetry and scenes exploring tinder romances, real-life isolation, instagram obsessions and much more.
