Earth. Humanity. 200,000 years in the making.
A new pop musical telling the 200,000‑year love story between Earth and Humanity. From first sparks to today’s abusive relationship via infidelities of astronomical proportions, can Humanity make up for all the pain they’ve caused Earth? With a high-energy score and razor-sharp lyrics,
THIS IS A LOVE STORY uses the language of pop music to shine a fresh light on our relationship with the planet.
This concert performance marks a significant moment in the creative development of THIS IS A LOVE STORY. This original musical was commissioned by Vicky Graham Productions and has been developed with the support of Arts Council England and HOME Manchester. Now, further developed at Dundee Rep Theatre, this REP STUDIOS live stream, scheduled during COP26, will be the first opportunity for audiences to experience the show in a concert setting - performed by two actors with a live on-stage band and continuous creative captioning. The presentation of this work continues Dundee Rep’s commitment to develop and platform the most exciting and innovative new musical theatre writing.
THIS IS A LOVE STORY will be further developed ahead of a premiere in 2022 to be announced.
