Songs: A play with music

July and November, 2011

Written by Cheyney Caddy
Original Score by Tiffanni Walton

A not-quite fairy tale about how stories are never just stories and songs are never just songs.

Things have got out of hand. Ruby Red, darling of the Reich, is on trial for writing an opera. The most diabolical opera you could ever imagine.

Her daughter, Little Blue, is not so little anymore. Now the war is over Little Blue wants the truth from Ruby. After all, they’re just songs. Aren’t they?

In an age of political rhetoric, Songs draws on the true story of director Veit Harlan and his infamous Nazi film Jud Süss, to ask questions about the power of stories and the responsibility of people who tell them.

Produced with the assistance of Kingston Arts Centre’s New Blood Programme.
