Verity – ditched at her wedding, nagged by her mum, hates her job … and it’s only Monday. This short musical gives a glimpse of Verity’s life, friends and family, with a lot of songs along the way. After a premiere to full houses at the Old Fire Station in Oxford in 2014, Verity came back for a re-run in July 2018 at Oxford High Drama Studio, before making her debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, where audience feedback was wonderful and we were rewarded with a four-star review from The Mumble.
A video of our original production is available on Scenesaver. We’re delighted that Verity was voted BEST MUSICAL in the 2022 Scenesaver Birthday Honours Awards.
Here are some quotes from our Fringe review:
‘…a veritable modern masterpiece’ … ‘an extremely talented bunch’ … ‘she rhymes like a rapper’… ‘A fabulous piece on so many levels’
And here are some audience reactions:
‘I loved it! Such great performances from everyone, and fab music.’
‘I really enjoyed the story, the fantastic singing and the slick presentation – very humorous, with some comical dance moves …’
‘It was absolutely bloody brilliant!’
