New family comedy Sing Something Simple plays at the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone, 27th and 28th March, 7.30pm.
With music in the family, especially their successful grandfather Gerry (a session singer with BBC Radio 2’s Cliff Adams Singers), Spencer and Kit Parkin have grown up aware of their legacy. But when Kit leaves to join the army, Spencer decides to enter a singing competition at the Royal Albert Hall. The only problem being he’s the only family member ever who’s unable to sing…
A bitter-sweet comedy, Sing Something Simple stars Dark Horse actor Joe Sproulle (Shameless, Harvest) alongside three non-learning disabled actors; Alwyne Taylor (The Royal, Emmerdale, Heartbeat), Heather Dutton and Richard Maxted.
Written and directed by Artistic Director Vanessa Brooks, the show by Huddersfield-based Dark Horse, features non learning disabled actors alongside one of Dark Horse’s learning disabled actors, playing an everyday family battling modern and topical preoccupations with fame, fortune and what it really means to ‘make it to the top.’
