News: Two new British musicals receive two weeks of encore streaming at Southwark Playhouse
Watch the "Public Domain" trailer

Following sensational reviews and an overwhelming public demand, new British musical Public Domain receives two additional weeks of streaming at Southwark Playhouse, until Sunday 31 January.

A dark, verbatim musical about authenticity online, Public Domain is written and performed by Francesca Forristal and Jordan Paul Clarke, and is produced and directed by Adam Lenson.

The musical is a high-octane, thrill- ride that’s made entirely from the words of YouTube vloggers, Instagram influencers, Facebook tech giants and everyday internet users. It follows teenage influencers Millie and Z and gives you exclusive “footage” of inside Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan’s family home. Authentic, right?

Further team includes technical producer Christian Czornyj, set and costume designer Libby Todd, lighting designer Matt Daw, video designer and associate director Matt Powell and movement director George Lyons, with music production, supervision and additional orchestrations by Joe and Nikki Davison for Auburn Jam Music. Public Domain is produced by ALP Musicals.

New musical The Fabulist Fox Sister also receives encore streaming treatment. A fully-staged production, the show is by Luke Bateman and Michael Conley, starring Conley.

“People want to believe in something. Why not this?”

Set in 1890s New York, Kate Fox is the woman who inadvertently invented séances, and she’s holding her last one. A final audience gathers in her apartment to watch as she conjures the ghosts of her two sisters to tell the story of their lives and the religion they accidently began.

Loosely inspired by the loosely true story of Kate Fox, The Fabulist Fox Sister is a silly, scathing and sardonic solo musical inspired by our own era of approximate truth.

The musical is a world premiere conceived entirely for multi-camera streaming, with direction from Adam Lenson, music by Lke Bateman and book and lyrics by Conley.
