New Heather Brothers musical Holy Crap to premiere at The King's Head this summer
The Heather Brothers new musical premieres in London.
A sacrilegious new musical comedy by The Heather Brothers comes to the King's Head Theatre this summer as Nick Thompson Productions & The Heather Brothers present Holy Crap, 'a sinful spin on evangelical television' at the north London pub theatre from 7 June to 8 July 2017 with an official opening on 9 June.
The Heather Brothers, writers of the musical A Slice of Saturday Night return with a brand new musical premiere directed by Benji Sperring.
"Holy Crap follows the launch of Britain’s first pay-to-view religious channel as American evangelist preacher, Reverend Bobby Del La Ray persuades legendary British rock star and devout Christian, Rex Bedderman, to co-host the channel. But with the charismatic leader up to his neck in debt, being forced to launder money for the Mafia and risking his own mother's life if the viewing figures don't increase, he does what any sane, normal person would do: he starts broadcasting hardcore porn. After all, how do you save someone from sin if they don't know what it looks like?"
The Heather Brothers said of the news: “In a world where ‘spin’ is all and style reigns supreme over substance, there has never been a more apt time for Holy Crap, with its irreverent and satirical take on the hypocrisy surrounding the pursuit of money and power. We’re delighted that our new show will be starting life at the home of both our previous West End musicals.”
The Heather Brothers first came to prominence with their 60’s musical A Slice Of Saturday Night which ran at the Kings Head before making its way into the West End and Broadway and has had well over 400 productions world-wide and has been translated into 9 languages.
Casting and further creative team for Holy Crap are yet to be announced.
