Music is medication. The elixir of life. It’s for injecting into the bloodstream to take away the pain… to promote euphoria

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.

Ben Chaplin stars in this new drama, directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill). Set design by award winning designer Hildegard Bechtler, costume design by Dinah Collins, compositions by music supervisor David Arnold, lighting by Rick Fisher, and sound by John Leonard.

‘I’m not saying he’s a sociopath. I’m just saying you find a lot of damaged people are drawn to the music industry. Lack of empathy, raging narcissism, grandiose egocentricity is expected of them.’
