John Thaw Studio
When the grief of his brothers death overwhelms Alex he finds a ‘music therapy’ group helps him find a way to express his grief move on.
After All is a one man musical show. An experiment in creating a hybrid that sits between monologue and musical. Storytelling in song. The fourth wall down.
Themes are: dealing with death, facing your demons, when right and wrong is a matter of perspective - how can we make the right choice, assisted dying and healing from grief.
Michael Brazil has a long history performing other people's work.This is his first project as a writer/performer. With an ultimate goal of a writing a full scale musical, this project is a medium to develop songwriting skills.
This project has been growing. It has been performed as a 10 minute monologue, 15 minute acapella sung through, 20 minutes with musical accompanied and now this 40 minute version followed by a Q&A to get audience feedback. The next step is an 55 minute version with the intention to take it to the Edinburgh Festival 2019.
