I HAVE A BAD FEELING ABOUT THIS…

Comedy musical about anxiety disorders with show tunes, tap-dancing and woodwind battles.

HOUSE OF BLAKEWELL are back at VAULT with an authentic, funny and touching new show about making friends, everyday battles and anxiety disorders. Join the award-winning creators of HOUSE PARTY and WE CAN MAKE YOU HAPPY for show tunes, woodwind duels and tap dancing in this brand new comedy musical.

Alice is newly married, has quit her job and moved to Berkhamsted (it’s in Hertfordshire) and it’s the best thing she’s ever done! She is going to be the woman she’s always wanted to be, cool and calm and free. She’s going to leave her self-loathing and destructive old friend anxiety firmly behind her and make NEW friends and they will LOVE the new her. BUT…. her old friend has other ideas. Will she win the battle and leave anxiety behind forever?
