Oscar
2nd to 5th March

Oscar has never had any trouble writing music. It comes naturally. But when his brother and writing partner dies suddenly, he is lost and creatively blocked.
His solution? Move to a remote Scottish island where he’ll have the time and space to breathe and grieve, and crucially to finish writing his suite of music. But when Oscar and his new landlady, Miriam, meet, it seems that solitude and time to write are the last things he’s likely to achieve. He goes seeking creative sanctuary, but in Miriam’s friendship, gets much more than he bargained for. A new musical about friendship, music and inspiration
