A play about the drama and the psychodrama of making music by the writer of Sunny Afternoon and Blue/Orange, the world premiere of Mood Music by Joe Penhall is directed by Roger Michell. In an expensive London recording studio two songwriters, their lawyers and their psychotherapists go to battle over music.
