The new musical play by Luke Bateman and Michael Conley will receive its streaming premiere from the 5th to the 8th May before being made available on demand from the 9th to the 31st May.
Filmed the ballroom at the beautiful Brocket Hall, The Sorrows of Satan is a new musical play which reimagines the story of Faust at the heart of 1920s London, where the elite are financially and emotionally bankrupt and one man has a big decision to make.
The cast is set to star Luke Bateman, who has written the music for the piece, as Geoffrey Tempest and Michael Conley who has written the book and lyrics as Lucio Rimanez. They are joined by musical director Stefan Bednarczyk as Amiel and Molly Lynch as the woman. The production is directed by Adam Lenson.
Pretentiously avant-garde musical playwright Geoffrey Tempest has been kicked out of his accommodation with not a penny to his name. He has one chance to prove himself to the theatrical community: a rehearsed reading of his musical play, ‘The Sorrows of Satan’. When his patron, the prodigal Prince Lucio Rimânez, suggests some significant changes, Geoffrey must decide whether to hold on to his artistic integrity (for what it’s worth) or sell out for the promise of fame, money and the love of his leading lady.
As well as the above, the creative team for the production includes: lighting by Sam Waddington and Ben Jacobs, technical production by Chris Czornyj, video designs by Matt Powell and assistant direction by Freya Smith. It is produced by Alfred Taylor-Gaunt and Aisling Tara.
The Sorrows of Satan will be streamed from the 5th to the 8th May before being made available on demand from the 9th to the 31st May.
