‘Tomorrow, Maybe’ is a new musical which has been written as a site-specific immersive piece, set and staged in a coffee shop.
Tomorrow, Maybe’ is just finishing it’s research and development process after completing its first workshop in Asante Coffee shop, Romsey in May 2015. Asante Coffee Shop is run to support c4c (Citizens for Change), a charity that helps to feed and educate children and young people in Kisumu, Kenya. The workshop was performed by local performers and supported by Southampton based company Stickman Productions and raised £2000 for the charity. This production has recently been recognised as ‘Best Newcomer’, ‘Best Opera or Musical’ and ‘Production of the year’ at the Southern Daily Echo curtain call awards.
After the first workshop performance AMIES & CLEMENTS have been rewriting and adjusting the show based on audience and industry feedback. The second workshop performance is in Asante, April 2016, where it will continue to support the charity as well as raise crucial funds to take the show to the next level. They intend to showcase ‘Tomorrow, Maybe’ on the Edinburgh fringe platform this August before transferring to a London coffee shop.
The musical, set in a commuters’ coffee shop, poses questions about those people we cross paths with every day whilst going about our lives. Do they know anything about each other? Do they care? The show considers what we would see if we took a moment to stop and look around us.
