Sing Something Simple

Sing Something Simple

00:00 /

Sing Something Simple is being performed at Lincoln Drill Hall on Thursday 20 March.

Written and produced by Dark Horse, a national touring theatre company based in Huddersfield, Sing Something Simple was a huge hit when it first toured early in 2013. The play is a heartfelt story filled with warmth and humour and features and lots of fantastic songs – some of which the audience is invited to sing along to.

With a focus on family, friendship and fame, Sing Something Simple sensitively explores the modern obsession with talent and celebrity in a conflicting world of TV talent shows and international politics. Whilst the show is sure to provoke discussion, it is also great fun.

Spencer Parkin can’t sing, but everyone around him can. His Mum belts out 80s power ballads, his best friend Bonnie is a karaoke queen and his brother Kit is heading for pop stardom. Fed up with living in all of their shadows Spencer goes on his own quest for musical fame which leads all the way to the Royal Albert Hall. Featuring live music and digital projection, this clever, bittersweet comedy from leading integrated theatre company Dark Horse is a real heart-warming gem.

Artistic Director of Dark Horse, Vanessa Brooks spoke to Siren 107.3’s Ed Wellman. Hear much more about the production by clicking the LISTEN button above.

This performance forms part of the Drill Hall’s 10th anniversary celebrations.
