A powerful and entertaining take on the last 18 months, The Covid-19 Variations: A Piano Drama is a unique and outrageously funny film and concert in one starring everyone from Donald Trump and Elton John to Kanye West and even the Royal Family - because everyone has lived through Covid.
Olivier Award-winning Richard Thomas composed The Covid-19 Variations after having Covid twice. Inspired by his music, BAFTA-winning artist Alison Jackson has created 19 short films for each of the Covid-19 Variations, drawn from her world of fake news, alternative facts, and celebrity lookalikes, and commemorating life in the time of Covid. Featuring a Gershwinesque 23 minute riff, the music is performed live by world-renowned pianist Philip Edward Fisher.
Directed by The REP's Artistic Director Sean Foley, each performance will be followed by an 'In Conversation' with Sean, Alison Jackson, Richard Thomas, Philip Edward Fisher, and the audience.
Tickets start at just £17.50 and include a free drink. You will be able to choose a glass of either white or red wine, orange juice or water on arrival at the theatre.
