After Party10:00 PM, Wednesday 27 May, 2015
The Cosy Club
In October 1820, Franz Schubert and his closest friends gathered together in a Viennese drinking-house to celebrate art, freedom and love. Before the evening had ended they were arrested by the secret police – their fractured circle never to be complete again.
Innovative music theatre company Re:Sound recreates this eventful evening in the familiar environment of the modern-day drinking house. Featuring a cast of four actor-musicians as Schubert and his close circle of friends, and with a new script by Katharine Armitage, the company welcomes the audience into Schubert’s world, away from the formality of the concert hall, to be thrown instead into a personal encounter of friendship, humour, revolution and loss.
We are delighted to announce that After Party will be performed as part of the 2015 Salisbury International Arts Festival. For one evening we will be transforming the beautiful Grade II listed former arts college turned art-nouveau bar, the Cosy Club, into a 19th – Century Viennese drinking house. Come and join us for an evening of song, friendship and fun.
