Siren Song - Lion and Unicorn Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
SIREN Song, Lisa McMullin’s darkly comic tale of a twisted modern romance, receives its world premiere at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, where it runs from Tuesday, November 12 to Saturday, November 16, 2013.
I’m not sure getting drunk is the answer…Well then you obviously didn’t understand the question.
Set in a failing London jazz bar, Siren Song tells the unrequited love story of three central characters: Tom, Kay and Stuart. Then there’s Henry….
Henry knows a secret. He also knows there are worse things than a broken heart. There’s a recession, unemployment, homelessness and humiliation. Most importantly he knows that in the end it doesn’t matter does it? It doesn’t matter at all.
Who loved who – who kissed who – who cares?
Lisa McMullin also directs a cast that includes Ryan Kennedy (as Tom), Niamh Bracken (Kay) and Ben Elder (Stuart).
Siren Song features original music by Cerys Hogg, with lyrics by Ryan Kennedy and lighting by Steven Lunn.
Tickets: £15/£12 – available from the box office on 08444 77 1000 or from Ticketweb.
Times: Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm; Saturday matinee at 3.30pm.
