FROM MORNING TO MIDNIGHT

Posted: Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

I’ve just written the original score to the National Theatre production of Georg Kaiser’s expressionist masterpiece
From Morning to Midnight (1912), in a new version by Dennis Kelly, directed by Melly Still.

Playing now at the Lyttelton Theatre.

 

…it has a surging theatrical vitality. The show bulges with memorable images…There is vibrant support from…a witty score by Dave Price based on themes from Wagner’s Tannhauser. But this is a company show in which Kaiser’s savage parable has been brought abundantly to life.
