A Night at the Theatre

A New International and Vanishing Point present
A Night at the Theatre

Following sell-out gigs at Celtic Connections and the Traverse Theatre, A New International present A Night at the Theatre.

Inspired by classic songwriters of musical theatre such as Kurt Weill and Lionel Bart and by Weimar-era cabaret, these songs find themselves in a musical space somewhere between Leonard Cohen and The Muppets. Interspersed with darkly comic poetry performed by Vanishing Point icons Pauline Goldsmith and Peter Kelly, this promises to be a brilliant, raucous night out.

Who’d have thought, that when we died, we didn’t die completely?

Our consciousness goes on a bit. It lingers on, discreetly

The dead they natter, fill the hole and bitch about each other.

Some play cards and some get drunk, sister fights with brother.

There’s debate and there’s discussion, there’s squabbling and there’s mirth.

This is life in the cemetery, it’s life beneath the earth.

Who would have thought a night in the cemetery could be so much fun?
