“A real treat….. A thoroughly appreciative, discerning audience were introduced to a busker’s life with wit and pathos and no more than a guitar, a hat and a beautiful voice. I look forward to seeing it again.” – Latest 7 Magazine.
“Seth Morgan has a natural charisma that is rare.” – FringeReview
This new play with songs by writer Guy Picot tells the story of a journeyman busker against the backdrop of a changing world. Using classics from The Great Subterranean Songbook, we see one man’s passage from youthful ambition to middle-aged acceptance, via Heartbreak Junction and the occasional stop on Easy Street. The show explores the uncharted underbelly of London, and Life.
Guy wrote the award-winning one-person show Bonnie in Brighton, which has been performed in Brighton, London, Edinburgh and LA. He also wrote the seasonal dark comedy The Christmas Present which has enjoyed several productions in the UK and US. For TV we has written episodes of Bad Girls and Footballers’ Wives. As a lyricist, he has written songs for several children’s shows including Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Pigeon Party and The Night before Christmas for Big Wooden Horse Theatre Company.
Performed by actor and musician Seth Morgan (winner of the Brighton Festival Award 2007 for Best Male Performer, lead singer of ‘Health and Pleasure’, and currently performing as Prospero in Emporium Theatre’s production of ‘The Tempest’) and directed by Herald-Angel-winner Ross Gurney-Randall.
Going Undergound made its debut at The Latest Music Bar, Manchester Street, Brighton on 19th April, 2016.
