TRP Young Company's The Sad Club - Auditions!


The Sad Club

By Luke Barnes with music by Adam Pleeth

“It’s ok. I know your head’s fallen off and I just want you to know everyone’s has.” 

About the show:

This is a show about sadness, told with live music, energy, colour and light. Whisking us from the local swimming pool to the snowy plains of Greenland via outer space and Medieval England, The Sad Club asks what stops us from being happy and how we might break through those barriers.

This is a musical about depression and anxiety. It’s a collection of monologues, songs and duologues from all over time and space exploring what about living in this world stops us from being happy and how we might go about tackling those problems. The Sad Club will play in the Drum Theatre from the 24th -26th August 2023
