It’s WELL cool to see people’s creative endeavours flourish and succeed. This new home-grown, British chamber musical first appeared on my radar back at the Edinburgh Festival in 2008. Since those humble beginnings, it’s been drafted, re-worked, workshopped and now appears in a lovely big two-act version at the Arcola Theatre. And there’s TONNES to celebrate here.
