Music and lyrics by Matthew Strachan
Book by Bernie Gaughan
Produced at The Landor Theatre, London, November 2011
A one-woman musical about one man: some of the ladies in this one act show love Bill, others hate him, but all are touched by him. Bill infuriates, charms, redeems himself, then ruins it all as we follow him from 1930's Blackpool to 90's London. A jazz man, Bill is the boy with a horn. And how.
Starring Kim Ismay (MAMMA MIA!, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG), directed by Charlotte Westenra (LOWER NINTH, KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN), and written by Matthew Strachan and Bernie Gaughan (NEXT DOOR'S BABY, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, HOW TO LOSE A HUSBAND AND GAIN A LIFE), the 2011 world première of ABOUT BILL promises to be a funny and moving journey through a man's life.
"...the evening is a tour-de-force of the actress’s versatility, range of character, strength of voice and downright brilliance. This show deserves to return to a stage soon."
