Here’s everything you need to watch The Old Vic’s production of Mood Music and how to support the show with their free Mood Music teaching resources and Education Pack.
About Mood Music
Behind its seductive and glamorous veneer, the music industry has a dark side. Whether it’s bitter legal battles fought by the likes of George Michael, Kesha and Tulisa, or the lost lives of Amy Winehouse and Chris Cornell, the price of fame and success can be brutal.
‘The music industry isn’t about healing heartbreak and vulnerability. It’s about selling it.’
In a top London recording studio, Cat, a young songwriter, her producer Bernard, their lawyers and psychotherapists go to battle over who owns a hit song. Amidst a gathering storm of bitter complaints and recriminations Cat and Bernard inflict a devastating toll on each other.
Running time: TBC
Suitable for: Ages 14+
Dates available: Until 14 July
