Rewrites: Nel's Place by Sheep Soup
Trapped in a hoard of memories and music, Nel yearns to make space for granddaughter Molly’s 16th birthday celebrations. Can Nel find a way through grief to let her family in?
Nel’s Place is a new musical from Sheep Soup, examining what material things really mean to us, and how easily we can become buried by the past.
As the grand master of musicals, Stephen Sondheim, once said, ‘Musical comedies aren’t written, they’re rewritten’.
REWRITES showcases new musicals at the start of their journey to the stage – a platform that puts shows on their feet and in front of an audience for the first time. A mix of works-in-progress, concert performances and short preview-style ‘curtain raisers’, you will get to be a part of something special, right at the beginning!
REWRITES is a partnership programme led by The Lowry, Birmingham Hippodrome, MAST Mayflower Studios and Norwich Theatre.
Initiated by The Lowry in 2017, musicals featured previously in REWRITES include: No Miracles Here by The Letter Room, A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Sad) by Jon Brittain and Matthew Floyd Jones, A Mother’s Song by Finn Anderson and Tania Azevedo and Snowflake by Lewis Cornay. The hit West End musical Operation Mincemeat started out at a scratch event as part of REWRITES.
