Earth To Kurt – A Grunge Opera.
Kurt 27, a musician, a poet and alive? Does every soul have the chance to be saved or is our destiny predetermined?
Kurt may find that music holds the key as our band ‘The Fates’ plead with him on a melodic journey through his life. Arriving at a junction in time, Kurt confronts the fray in the thread of his very existence.
Earth to Kurt is a moving and surprising look at the journey to the afterlife and the stories and people we leave behind.
With original music by George Clark, A gig-theatre experience of grief, absolution and compassion co-written by George Clark and Ricky Hunt, featuring live up-incoming band “THE FATES” and the drag of queens Kyran Peet KYRAN THRAX.
Press & Reviews
"We’ve never wished theatre seats came with a seat belt until we saw Earth to Kurt… Rip-roaring chaos was met by slick songwriting and scorching riffs. This genre-defying Grunge ‘n’ Roll play fills that gig-shaped hole in our locked down lives.” - Burnt Lemon Theatre Company
"Had the pleasure of teaching Volume Club at East 15 Acting School. Both are talented young makers oozing charisma and grace. If this show turns out half as good as the elevator pitch, it's going to be a winner. I am rooting for them and you should be too!" - Christopher Brett Bailey
"Earth to Kurt is experienced by some as a fantasy and some as a nightmare, but it is definitely a dream of a show" - Uri Roodner, Head of Course, East 15 Acting and Contemporary Theatre
