‘LIFE, APPARENTLY’, a new musical. Music & lyrics by DAVID FALLON, book by SOPHIE BEVAN.
‘Life, Apparently’ is a new musical by Rose Bruford trained actor musicians; David Fallon and Sophie Bevan. Inspired by the events of AIDS activist group ACT UP, ‘Life, Apparently’ takes you on a journey from late 80s New York to the present day. One man reflects on his time as an activist and comes to terms with his survivors guilt. Together with David Fallon’s lyrics, uplifting contemporary musical theatre style, and Sophie Bevan’s punchy, political dialogue, ‘Life, Apparently’ challenges us to ask questions about the responsibility we have towards each other, and the consequences of living and loving in the midst of war.
ACT UP is an activist group born in New York at the height of the AIDS crisis. The group grew, with many splinter groups forming across America and internationally. Hundreds of individuals united in anger decided to take action against a system and disease that threatened the the lives of the LGBTQ+ community, forming a blueprint for future activist groups. This cast of 15 actors and actor musicians hope to capture the humour, intelligence and anger that catapulted ACT UP to international success and acclaim.”
