It’s 2014. Gay marriage has just been legalised in the UK, and Rowan and their LGBTQ+ bandmates want to sing it from the rooftops. But their all-girl’s Catholic school have other ideas. Disbanded and reprimanded, the group has a choice: do they bow down, retreat, and let the school rules divide them? Or, through all the angsty mess of adolescence, do they unite and fight back to make a change?


The Phase is a contemporary pop/punk musical about friendship, young love and singing loud when others want to silence you


The song 'Broken Guitar' recently won the 'Vision, Voice and Potential' award at the Stiles and Drewe Best New Song Prize 2020. The Phase was also a finalist in BYMT’s New Music Theatre Award 2019.

 

The show had its first workshop at the Other Palace on 4th July 2019 and its second workshop at The Warehoyse on 30th October 2020. It has been featured in scratch nights like All That Scratch, SHOOK and Signal. It was also selected to be showcased as part of BEAM2020.
