In Their Own Words – Folkestone
Anna Braithwaite follows up her Normal? festival premiere Brainsong by teaming up with composer Michael Betteridge to present a brand new piece of verbatim musical theatre tackling loss and survival. Setting the stories of two people facing life-changing diagnoses with honesty and humour against a backdrop of classical, pop and folk, these are musical portraits told ‘In Their Own Words’.
“Michael Betteridge’s inventive score parodies Handel’s choruses, medieval courtly dance and even barber shop quartet.”
