Gemma and Campbell at Red Stitch

Friends of the NPCO recently attended the preview of Red Stitch Theatre Company’s Australian premiere production of Lovesong by British playwright Abi Morgan, featuring an original score composed by Gemma Turvey, performed by NPCO’s Campbell Banks (cello) live on stage each night as part of the play! Lovesong is directed by Denny Lawrence and features Paul English, Jillian Murray, Maddy Jevic and Dylan Watson.

 

Congratulations to all the Lovesong cast and crew on their fantastic opening night and critical reviews.
