“The story I have to tell you is 'bout how something beautiful, something excellent, was created in spite of unfairness and vexation."

The yarn of the greatest jazz musician you’ve never heard of.

A dramatic monologue narrated by the drummer who might just have invented jazz. Brought to life, for one night only alongside a live band performing original music by Claude Deppa and Lucas Keen.

Tuesday 12 October -  8.00pm

A Waltz In New Orleans is the first play by Lucas Keen and has been realised via The Arts Council's Developing Your Creative Practice Fund which supports creative practitioners in taking their practice to the next stage through research, time to create new work, travel, training, networking and mentoring.
