  • The Old Vic presents the world premiere of Joe Penhall's new play Mood Music, starring Ben Chaplin.

    ‘Music is medication. The elixir of life. It’s for injecting into the bloodstream to take away the pain…to promote euphoria…to adrenalise us and give us courage and empathy.’

    In a top London recording studio, Cat, a young songwriter, her producer Bernard, their lawyers and psychotherapists go to battle over who owns a hit song. Amidst a gathering storm of bitter complaints and brutal recriminations Cat and Bernard inflict a devastating toll on each other in a war that only one of them can win.

    ‘The music industry isn’t about healing heartbreak and vulnerability. It’s about selling it.’

    Written by Joe Penhall (Sunny Afternoon, Blue/Orange) and directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Enduring Love), Mood Music is a sparklingly acerbic new play about power, passion and the price of creativity. It also stars Pip Carter, Kurt Egyiawan, Seána Kerslake, Jemma Redgrave and Neil Stuke.

    At The Old Vic in London until 16 June 2018, book your Mood Music tickets today!
