Brand-new musical film Cells is to be released episodically from 19 April, starring Clive Rowe and Lem Knights.
Released by Metta Theatre, one of the UK’s leading production companies devoted to British musical theatre, Cells has been written, developed and recorded entirely during lockdown by award-winning writer and director P Burton-Morgan, alongside composer Ben Glasstone.
“A university science lab. A kebab shop at 2am. An online gaming forum. Two strangers’ lives become intertwined. Alan Bennett meets The Streets in this tender and uplifting new work, giving voice to the lives of two everyday blokes.”
Partnering with Royal & Derngate Northampton, Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, the first episode is set to be launched on Monday 19 April, with subsequent episodes released daily, and the full film to be made available on Monday 26 April.
Cells is mixed and mastered by Simon Small, with musical direction from Phil Cornwell, photography direction from Jon Dickinson and film editing by Will Reynolds. Phil Cornwell plays keys and double bass and Curtis Volp is on guitar.
