Kids Company Musical

Committee

“The objective of this session is not to conduct a show trial. We want to learn some lessons.” What happens when something goes wrong? Who holds us accountable? On 15 October 2015, as part of an inquiry into ‘The collapse of Kids Company’, Camila Batmanghelidjh and Alan Yentob gave evidence to The Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee. Hadley Fraser, Josie Rourke and composer Tom Deering have transformed that evidence session into a new musical. This production has not been authorised by any participant or Parliament. We present it to you – the public – to consider how civic life in the UK is really governed. It is based on the Parliamentary transcript of the oral evidence session on 15 October 2015 and the words spoken by those participating in the Inquiry.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

Our Review

The National's 2011 premiere of London Road, based on the real-life verbatim testimony of a community affected by the serial murders of women who had been working as prostitutes in Ipswich five years earlier, already blazed a new trail for the sorts of stories musicals could tell, and how they could be told.
