"Tainted" is a brand-new piece of musical theatre with a book by Michael McManus and Charlie Ross Mackenzie, featuring songs from every stage of Marc Almond's career, ranging from the famous to the unknown and previously unpublished.
"Tainted" has been through four workshops and private readings, including a full performance of Act 1 in February 2018 with students from the Guildford School of Acting.
It will now have its first public concert performances in the Vaults Theatre, under Waterloo Station, on 24 October.
There will be a special, industry matinee show and then an evening show, for the many friends, family and Marc Almond fans who have helped make this unique day possible.
The showcase will feature a cast of 12 and a live 4-piece band.
In a world tainted by bigotry and injustice, "Tainted" is a tale of acceptance, survival and love, set in a basement space in Soho, between 1944 and our own time, where everyone and anyone can be themselves.
The name of the place may change - Le Grand Guignol, Gutter Hearts, The Pink Flamingo - but the ethos never will.
There is no prejudice accepted here, no hatred and no blame. Just love, live and let live.
