In May

In May

Written by Frank Alva Buecheler
Music by Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy)
Translated by Tim Clarke
Directed by Matt Fenton

In May takes the form of a series of letters from a son to a father, during his last months in the advanced stages of cancer. Each has been set to music by Neil Hannon, the renowned musician, singer and leader of pop group The Divine Comedy. Featuring stunning projections, sumptuous live vocals and a string ensemble, the result is a beautiful, moving and at times funny piece of contemporary music theatre, charting the end of one man’s life.
