Ade Morris’ music theatre play, BUBBLES is revived for a short Watermill Theatre, Newbury run and a 17 venue Autumn tour after a hugely successful spring tour which took the company all over the country playing to happy audiences in a plethora of venues from village halls to theatres.
BUBBLES, a warm, funny and poignant musical comedy, follows Ade Morris's hugely successful MICKY SALBERG’S CRYSTAL BALLROOM DANCE BAND which toured the UK extensively twice last year, following runs at The Watermill, in Newbury.
The noughties have left Bubbles Brough behind, banjaxed and bewildered, wondering where her youth and dreams have disappeared. Her sons, Charley and Dirk, chips off the old cylinder block of her recently deceased husband Reg Brough, have different ideas about the future of Bubbles Scrap. As the credit crisis bites the prospects look bleak. Should they sell the yard for executive housing, or keep the business going? Dirk is tempted by the money and Charley, who loves his Mum who is against the idea, doesn’t know what to do. Departed Reg watches it all and tries to help them make the right decision - but as the bin liners pile up and the past is ever present, time is fast running out for Bubbles.
Ade Morris’ writing credits include THE COMEDIAN, GIGOLO, THE STORY OF A GREAT LADY and I DREAMT I DWELT IN MARBLE HALLS which enjoyed a London run.
Sarah Travis won a Tony Award in New York for her work on The Watermill’s production of SWEENEY TODD during its Broadway run. Her recent work for The Watermill includes SPEND SPEND SPEND! SUNSET BOULEVARD, MARTIN GUERRE and HOT MIKADO, all with director Craig Revel Horwood.
Composer Carl Calow is a promising new talent on the music theatre scene.
Melody Brown and Ryan Coath, who reprise their roles, are joined by William Kenning.
