â¦a play for four musicians and one actor.
Music by Hugh Nankivell. Written by Peter Oswald. In partnership with South West Music School.
Hazel (Louise Waterfall) is locked in a police cell.
She is nineteen.
She has been arrested at a demonstration. She wasn't really part of the demonstration. She isn't really part of anything.
All Hazel has is her music, but that's been taken away. She's alone in her silent cell, except for the mysterious person asleep on the bed. She has got to have music, and she makes it in her own head. She makes it out of all the things she knows and all the people she knows. She makes it out of the disasters of her life.
The musical instruments are characters in Hazel's life, leading her into her memory and out again. But are they just in her head, or do they have a mind of their own?
Will the music save her life?
Solitary will take the audience right out of their comfort zones, to the place where you fall apart, and you have to find a way to put yourself back together again.
Solitary is a new music theatre production. Produced by Peninsula Arts in partnership with South West Music School and supported by the Dorset Foundation.
