Tour synopsis, cast & creatives

1903, Somerset. Rooted in the land where she has lived her entire life, Louie Hooper's mind overflows with its songs - more than 300 of them passed down from her mother. Cecil Sharp, a composer visiting from London, fears England's folk songs will be lost forever and sets out on a mission to transcribe each and every one. He believes Louie's music should speak not just for this place but for the whole of England. But whose England?


Ben Allen (John), Mariam Haque (Louie), Sasha Frost (Lucy), Simon Robson (Sharp)
