#blessed - a spoken word cabaret

In an innovative twist on the typical cabaret show, a company of 7 actors perform a programme of new writing peppered with favourites from the musical theatre canon in an acerbic examination of our relationship with technology and social media.

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.
