PART OF INSIDE OUT FESTIVAL 2017
The Leftovers is a comic and stirring contemporary musical from Sheep Soup Productions, creators of hit musical Mrs Green and graduates of Nottingham’s BAFTA award-winning Television Workshop.
Following the sudden death of Jodie, occasional gig reviewer and the definition of misadventure, some of her friends join forces in a Nottingham recording studio. Local singer-songwriter Hayley has penned a memorial song for Jodie, but the makeshift band can’t seem to agree on what their late friend would have wanted from a musical tribute. Are they here to pay their respects or to alleviate their guilt? Or is this just an intense form of music therapy?
School friend Angie has returned to find closure. Yaz helped Jodie recapture her youth, but craved a deeper connection. Old flame Russ wants to know how much his brief fling with Jodie really meant. Jim is just trying to keep the creative chaos on schedule.
The Leftovers brings Sheep Soup’s innovative and comedic brand of contemporary musicals back to Curve. It’s a heartfelt and hilarious look at the pitfalls of artistic interpretation and the melody of grief, with a truly unforgettable original score.
