Words Are Not Enough: The Songs of Finn Anderson


One of the UK’s most exciting and versatile emerging musical theatre talents, Scottish writer-composer Finn Anderson is currently developing a string of new shows set to hit stages throughout the UK over the next two years.

Join some of London and Scotland’s finest performers as they preview songs from new musicals in development as well as Alba (award-winning Edinburgh Fringe hit), Streets (OffWestEnd Best New Musical award nominee), and Come Hell or High Water (Sky Arts/Citizens Theatre).

Expect songs in an eclectic range of styles; with stories spanning the Scottish highlands, Europe’s concert halls, the Brazilian rainforest, and the world of Britain's allotments.

The cast includes Scottish actress Karen Fishwick whose performance in Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour earned her an Olivier nomination for ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role’. Karen is currently playing Juliet with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Also joining the lineup is Sean Kingsley whose West End credits include Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, as well as Billy Elliot, Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats and We Will Rock You; and Steve Watts whose credits include Higgins in My Fair Lady (West End, UK Tour), and roles at the National Theatre, Regents Park Open Air Theatre, and The Watermill. Emerging talents Amy Gardyne, Minal Patel and Ayesha Quigley will also perform.

Also working on the concert are Director Tania Azevedo (currently directing It’s Only Life at the Union Theatre) and Musical Director Daniel Jarvis.

One of the next great musical theatre writers”  (Festival Journal)

A great songwriting talent” (Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music)

Writer Finn Anderson has truly come into his own… quality writing, a beautiful musical score, vocal harmonies that send shivers down the spine… a musical which hits the spot in some style” (Broadway Baby on Alba)

At times haunting, at times fierce, it is a powerful score… theatre for the next generation that is fiercely creative and thrillingly fresh(A Younger Theatre on Streets)
