The Life Of Us

16 Jan 2020 to 9 Feb 2020

To kick off Hayes Theatre Co’s 2020 season, 100 Coffees Productions and Neil Gooding Productions are thrilled to announce the World Premiere of the new musical, The Life of Us. Directed by Neil Gooding, this modern-day musical written by Ashleigh Taylor, composed and written by Ben Bennett and mentored by the legendary Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell), is being performed at Hayes Theatre Co from 16 January 2020.

 

The Life of Us follows the long-distance romance of Charlie and Ellie. Forced apart by circumstance, they maintain their relationship through technology, but how much connection can a person truly feel through a screen? As we watch their lives unfold and their relationships crumble, we begin to understand what we want isn’t always what we need. The Life of Us is a modern-day musical that looks at how we love and what it means to be connected.

 

Director Neil Gooding said “Following several private readings and workshops, The Life Of Us was presented for one night at Hayes Theatre in April 2019. It was a hugely exciting night – I think it is fair to say that the audience went crazy for the show.  Not only were we shocked by the overwhelming response, but we were also intrigued about the varied ages of people in the audience.  It was unique to see so many younger audience members in the room, enjoying the show alongside the more traditional audiences that I am used to seeing at the Hayes. I am so excited to see this show grow again into a full production following its presentation in Los Angeles as part of the ASCAP workshops. It is the little show that just keeps growing and getting better each time, and it contains some of the best new musical theatre writing and songs that I have ever heard.”

 

The Life of Us is Australia‘s new, ground-breaking musical with the extraordinary ability to express universal feelings of love and heartbreak within a deeply affecting and intimate musical. With a knockout, emotionally powerful score that will hook you from the first note, this original production is raw, heart-wrenching and honest. If you are, have been, or hope to be in love, this show is for you.
