Beyond the Fence at the Arts Theatre
Beyond the Fence marks a new dawn in the evolution of musical theatre – the first show in the world conceived and substantially crafted by computer!
Modelled on a statistical study of the ‘recipe for success’ in hit musicals, this unique experimental show has been created in collaboration with leading experts in music, computation and the science of human creativity, along with composer Benjamin Tilland his husband, writer and actor Nathan Taylor, the award winning team behind ‘Our Gay Wedding: The Musical’ (Channel 4).
Director Luke Sheppard will bring a whole range of computer-generated material to life with a talented human cast performing this emotionally powerful and exciting West End show.
Beyond the Fence will play a limited run from 22 February until 5 March 2016 at the Arts Theatre
Beyond the Fence is a powerful new musical about hope, defiance, unity and love. Set in September 1982, it tells the story of Mary and her daughter George who are celebrating one year of living at the Greenham Common peace camp. The group of women they have joined are all committed to stopping the arrival of US cruise missiles through non-violent protest. When Mary is faced with losing her child to the authorities, an unlikely ally is found in US Airman Jim Meadow. How can she continue to do what is best for her daughter while staying true to her ideals?
