Written and performed by Francesca Forristal and Jordan Paul Clarke, new musical 'Public Domain' will get a short, strictly limited season at the Vaudeville Theatre from 27 to 30 May, 2021.
This West End outing follows an acclaimed digital debut at Southwark Playhouse.
Directed by Adam Lenson, the show is composed entirely from the real-life words of YouTube vloggers, Instagram influencers, Facebook's tech giants, and everyday internet users and follows two teenage influencers; Millie (sporty spice, health guru, buddha bowls - millennial) and Z (GCSEs existential dread, swag - generation Z), as well as featuring exclusive 'footage' of inside Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan's family home.
As you might expect given the timing for this production, the Vaudeville theatre will employ COVID-19 secure guidelines for social distancing including robust risk mitigation, hand sanitation, face coverings and track and trace, contactless tickets, temperature testing and the regular deep clean and sanitation of the theatre.
Show listing information
Written and performed by the hugely talented Francesca Forristal (Oddball) and Jordan Paul Clarke (Showstopper! The Improvised Musical), this blackly comic musical follows two teenage influencers; Millie (sporty spice, health guru, buddha bowls - millennial) and Z (GCSEs existential dread, swag - generation Z), as well as featuring exclusive 'footage' of inside Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan's family home …
You're gonna get their honest, true selves … with some serious bass, obvs.
Remember, it's like 'Black Mirror' but real and set to music.
