Time Out Says

This new drama imagines an encounter between the folk music collector Cecil Sharp and one of his subjects

Set in Somerset, 1903, Nell Leyshon’s new drama imagines an encounter between the folk song collector Cecil Sharp and Louie Hooper, a middle-aged woman who knew over 300 songs that had been passed down by her mother. The drama, which is full of live music and directed by Hampstead boss Roxana Silbert, takes a closer, critical look at Sharp’s motives. Ben Allen, Sasha Frost, Mariam Haque and Simon Robson star.
