PLATTERBACK
Westbrook & Company
Westbrook Music Theatre

Five traveller/musicians are on a journey down from the mountains to the mythical modern city of Platterback. Their story, - by turns comic, tender and tragic, - is told in songs that evoke the many idioms of contemporary jazz and popular music.

Reviews

 

01/01/1998 The Times.

"Love, duty, nostalgia, the uneasy mutual dependence between the rural and the urban, are among the topics explored by Kate Westbrook's intelligent and informal lyrics, yet such is the power of the music and of its performance that the whole piece grips like a thriller" -

 

01/01/1998 The Independent.

"It plays with noise as a master chef plays with ingredients, teasing rare and unexpected qualities out of each musical medium to serve up a dazzling display of sound"

 

01/01/1998 Manchester Evening News

"...there is no denying its power and originality"
