Beyond The Fence

22ND FEBRUARY - 5TH MARCH 2016
Design by Tom Rogers.

BEYOND THE FENCE at the Arts Theatre in London. Sky Arts and Wingspan Theatricals will present the world's first ever computer musical directed by Luke Sheppard.

September 1982. Mary and her daughter George are celebrating one year of living at the Greenham, Common peace camp. The group of women they have joined are all committed to stopping the arrival of US cruise missiles through non-violent protest. When Mary is faced with losing her child to the authorities, an unlikely ally is found in US Airman Jim Meadow. How can she continue to do what is best for her daughter while staying true to her ideals? BEYOND THE FENCE is a powerful new musical about hope, defiance, unity and love. 

BEYOND THE FENCE is conceived by computer and substantially crafted by computer. It is modelled on a statistical study of the 'recipe for success' in hit musicals. Read more about it here.

"This is a fascinating project that we're extremely proud to be a part of. At Sky Arts, we're always excited by innovation and this venture offers an intriguing glimpse into how technology is changing music evolution. Can an algorithm create music with all the humanity, emotion and drama that a person can bring? This question captivates us. We cannot wait to see the result." - Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts. 

This ground-breaking process is being filmed for a Sky Arts TV series titled 'Computer Says Show', chronicling this unique experiment (to be broadcast in spring 2016). 

BEYOND THE FENCE will run at the Arts Theatre for a limited season from the 22nd February until the 5th March 2016. Press Night is Friday 26th February from 7pm.
